New residential speed limit - 40 km/h

Maximum 40 km/h speed sign

On August 6, the City of Edmonton is implementing a reduced residential speed limit of 40km/hr. The 30km/hr speed limit on our main ring road will remain and the 40km/hr limit will apply to all other neighbourhood roads.

We are looking for residents who would be interested in displaying a lawn sign to remind both neighbours and visitors to Lendrum of this speed limit change. We have identified a few hot spots where we would like to concentrate our efforts:
  • 113a Street between 57 - 60 Avenue
  • 111a Street between 54 - 57 Avenue
  • 114b Street from 51 Avenue to Avalon school
  • 115 Street from 51 - 60 Avenue
Please contact if you are interested in displaying a sign. Thank you for your diligence with this change and for encouraging a safe and welcoming community for all!

June Bike Challenge

June Bike Challenge

Lendrum has joined Ritchie’s June Bike Challenge Initiative.

For the month of June if you go for a bike ride please track your kms and submit them either by Strava (join the club Lendrum Bike Gang) or by email to by 5pm at the end of each week. First date of submission will be Sunday, June 6. If you don’t want to join Strava and need a way to track your kilometres, I downloaded the free “Bike GPS” app onto my phone which seems to work well.

Track your kids, track yourself, encourage your neighbour and let’s enjoy some bike rides this June!

An extra big thank you to everyone who braved the cold to pick up all of those bottles, and to the volunteers who delivered the flyers.

40 km/hr to make our streets safer

Starting this summer, the speed limit will be 40 km/h on most residential and downtown streets. “Safe and livable streets help us reach Edmonton’s goal of Vision Zero — to eliminate serious injuries and fatalities on our streets by 2032,” said Jessica Lamarre, Director of Safe Mobility. “The 40km/h default speed limit is critical to achieving Vision Zero and helps us make our streets calmer, quieter, and more enjoyable at the same time. Slowing down gives us more time to react to the unexpected, reduces unnecessary tragedies on our roads, and has very little impact on travel times. Thank you to everyone for supporting this change and doing your part to make our streets safer for everyone.”

To help Edmontonians become aware of the change and adjust their behaviours, an extensive public education campaign and activities will begin at least one month in advance of the effective date. This date will be announced in July.
