Public Works Transportation For Residents Planning - Long Range Transportation Plan

Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) Update, 2012

A Transportation Master Plan for the Region of Peel


What is the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)?

The LRTP addresses major transportation challenges that the Region of Peel expects to face over the next several decades, in particular:

  • Increasingly congested roads due to high population growth
  • Sustainable planning and protection of our environment to ensure a liveable future

Did you know...

Walking instead of taking the car improves the transportation system AND your health.

Every kilometre you walk generates a 5% reduction in diabetes risk and obesity!

The Transportation Vision

Because transportation is interconnected with health, quality of life, social equity and the environment, road improvement cannot be the sole answer to our congested roads. Instead, we need to promote transit, carpooling, cycling and walking. In supporting our economy, we also need to ensure that businesses will have access to efficient transportation routes that minimize environmental and community impacts. This means that we need to make our transportation system safe and convenient for everyone to use. Ultimately, we need to make a fundamental shift in mindset from an auto-oriented lifestyle to a more sustainable way of living.


Key Components of the LRTP

  • Transportation Vision, Goals, Objectives, Policies
  • Regional road improvements required by 2021 and 2031
  • Regional strategies, studies and action plans in goods movement, transportation demand management, and other sustainability initiatives
  • Implementation and Performance Measurement Plan
