Caledon Transportation - Needs Study Update (2009)
The Caledon Transportation Needs Study is a joint study between the Town of Caledon and the Region of Peel.
The Caledon Transportation Needs Study 2009 aims to provide:
- A system of roads to service existing and future land use patterns in Caledon.
- Safe, effective ways to move people and goods in and through the Town of Caledon.
The Caledon Transportation Needs Study Update 2009 is an update to the 2004 report (PDF). The 2004 report:
- Determined the existing and future demands within Caledon.
- The transportation improvements required to meet these demands.
Factors Taken into Account
The Needs Study Update 2009 takes into account:
- The most current Highway 427 Extension plan.
- Provincial growth guidelines that predict 108,000 people living in Caledon by 2031.
Findings from the 2009 study (PDF) shows that Peel's road capacity (the maximum amount of traffic a road can support using all available lanes) will be surpassed by 2021 and 2031.
The 2009 study indicates Peel's goals to:.
- Manage truck traffic, in cooperation with the Ministry of Transportation, to ensure Peel's transportation network can handle future growth.
- Work with neighbouring municipalities and regions to create a combined, continuous, reliable transportation system across municipal boundaries.
