Status: Study completed - study initiated April 2007.

The Halton-Peel Boundary Area Transportation Study Report was adopted by the Councils of participating municipalities* in April and May 2010.

* The participating municipalities include the Region of Peel, the City of Brampton, the Town of Caledon, Halton Region and the Town of Halton Hills.

Study Purpose

Identify a long-term (2021 and 2031) transportation network required to support provincial and inter-municipal planning goals, and to serve future transportation demands within the Study Area (see map).

Study Scope

The study will:
  • Support current and future municipal planning objectives by providing transportation capacity to accommodate future travel demands generated by planned growth in west Brampton and Halton Hills.
  • Develop a coordinated and interconnected roadway network system along the Halton-Peel boundary.
  • Identify opportunities for transportation mode choices, including public transit, carpooling / vanpooling, and High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes across the study area.
  • Identify solutions to serve long-distance truck traffic travelling in the Study Area between Halton Region and Peel Region.
  • Identify improvements that will serve inter-regional traffic including longer-distance, cross-boundary traffic from Halton Region (and areas west of Halton Region), travelling through west Brampton and southwest Caledon to destinations to the south and east in Peel Region, York Region, and Toronto.
  • Review the potential to improve connections with the existing Provincial 400-series highway network and possible future Provincial transportation facilities including the GTA West Corridor Planning and Environmental Assessment Study.
  • Explore opportunities to reduce dependency on the automobile through Travel Demand Management (TDM) / transit supportive measures.
