Active Transportation Network Study

What is the Active Transportation Network Study?

The Active Transportation Network Study includes the development of design guidelines and a feasibility study. Together, these pieces will inform future upgrades of the City’s network of trails to improve connectivity for active forms of transportation such as walking, running, cycling and inline skating. Design guidelines will consider what upgrades would look like in different environments such as woodlands, wetlands, city parks and road boulevards.

The feasibility study will determine which trails are best suited for upgrades as well as the estimated construction and maintenance costs of changes recommended by the design guidelines.

The Active Transportation Network Study was endorsed by Council as part of the Cycling Master Plan (2013).

The City is working with MMM Group Ltd. and Paradigm Transportation Solutions Ltd. to complete the study which includes:

  • Collection of background data, evaluation of existing and proposed facilities, and a review of best practices;
  • Identification of segments requiring additional environmental impact studies ;
  • Creation of design guidelines for different environments such as woodlands, wetlands, parklands and boulevards;
  • Evaluation of the construction and cost feasibility of upgrading and maintaining the selected network.

The City is also consulting with local technical agencies, external stakeholder groups and local interest groups and the general public.
