Halton Region is initiating a Transportation Master Plan (TMP) - The Road to Change to develop a sustainable, integrated transportation plan and associated strategies that consider all modes of travel (automobiles, transit, cycling, walking) to the year 2031.

Problem Statement

The master plan will provide the strategies, policies and tools required to meet the Region’s transportation needs safely, effectively and cost efficiently.

The Process

The Transportation Master Plan is a study which will define existing problems/opportunities, consider and evaluate solutions, and identify an optimum transportation system to the year 2031.

A key outcome of the study will be a list of transportation projects that the Region can incorporate in its 20-year Roads Capital Program.

To comply with the Environmental Assessment Act, the study is being conducted in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process (October 2000, as amended in 2007).

Public Consultation

A key component of the study will be public consultation. There will be 2 rounds of public information centres (PICs) for the 'Transportation Master Plan to 2031'.
