LONG RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLAN UPDATE, 2012
NOTICE OF INFORMATION

The Region of Peel’s 2012 update of the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) has been completed!

This 2012 update of the LRTP provides a policy framework for Regional Official Plan Amendment (ROPA) 22 and 26, serving as a technical basis for these amendments. In addition, the study serves as a transportation master plan for the Region of Peel, conducted under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process in compliance with Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act. This study addresses Phases 1 and 2 from the Municipal Class EA process, consisting of problem definition, identifying alternative solutions, and selecting a preferred solution with consultation of the public and key stakeholders.

This study identifies major transportation challenges that Peel Region expects to face over the next few decades, in particular:

  • Increasingly congested roads due to high population growth and increasing goods movement activity
  • Ensuring a liveable future through sustainable planning and protection of our environment.

Based on these findings, and thorough consultation with the public and key stakeholders, the study provides alternative solutions and highlights the need for a broad strategy that encompasses:

  • Transportation demand management initiatives promoting carpooling, cycling, walking, taking transit, etc.
  • Transportation system measures to maximize the use of existing infrastructure
  • Regional road improvements
  • Goods movement studies to better understand and improve the movement of goods through the Region

The Long Range Transportation Plan Report was adopted by the Regional Council on June 28, 2012. This plan is available at http://www.peelregion.ca/LRTP
