Safety Concerns- Traffic and Road Safety
Would you like to get your children to school and yourself to work on time every week day?
Hidden Valley Schools and Hidden Valley Residents are very much concerned with volume of vehicles and student safety. Excessive traffic by private vehicles and school buses during drop-off and pick-up off students at three schools on Hidden Valley Drive is occuring because of limited access. Traffic is congested also for local residents since many parents and school buses who make u-turns on Hidden Valley Drive or use alley ways not designed for through traffic. In part this problem is caused by having no right turn from Hidden Valley Drive onto Shaganappi Trail northbound.
Furthermore an increase in traffic through Hanson Ranch is caused by southbound traffic from Panorama. Access onto Stoney Trail is only possible in a northbound direction but not southbound. Traffic therefore uses residential roads through Panorama into Hanson Ranch which further increases the danger for school children to reach their Schools on Hidden Valley Drive.
Hidden Valley Community Association has had several meetings with local MLA's and Ward Councillors advocating for a solution to this problem that will not go away. Please contact our local MLA Calgary - Northern Hills, Jamie Kleinsteuber firstname.lastname@example.org)for Hanson Ranch residents and MLA Calgary - Foothills, TBD email@example.com for Hidden Valley residents to share your experiences. Please also contact our local Ward 4 Councillor, Sean Chu firstname.lastname@example.org for Hidden Valley residents to show your concern.
