Pedestrian Access and Sidewalk Safety

Nov 9 2015

Sidewalks can be dangerous places for those who experience any degree or type of mobility challenge, be it balance or strength, using a walker or other mobility device or a having a sensory limitation such as a visual impairment. There is significant construction happening right now across Waterloo Region, especially in the central areas of Kitchener and Waterloo. The amount of construction and number of detours are making it a much greater challenge than usual at this time for anyone who travels by car but especially for those who must get around on foot, cycle or public transit. Please read the guidelines for property owners, service providers and the community as a whole.
