2051 Transportation Master Plan
A plan that will outline Peel’s future transportation system and guide how we’ll accommodate future travel demands of a growing population.
Peel Region is expected to grow by 700,000 people and 350,000 jobs by 2051.
This will result in more traffic during peak period times. This increased traffic will place an increasing demand on Peel’s transportation system.
To accommodate increased demand, we need to develop a transportation master plan that accounts for all modes of travel while helping us achieve Our Community for Life.
A comprehensive approach to transportation planning
As Peel Region’s transportation system and land use evolves and urbanizes, so does the role and function of our Regional roads.
This means there is increasing pressures for Peel’s roadways to start accommodating vehicles and modes of travel beyond just the automobile including transit, trucks, pedestrians, and cyclists, which all effect the user experience along Peel’s roadways.
To ensure that the Peel Region 2051 Transportation Master Plan reflects these synergies, we’re merging updates to the following plans into one integrated and coordinated plan:
- Let’s Move Peel – Long Range Transportation Plan – 2019 full report
- Sustainable Transportation Strategy – February 2018
- Vision Zero Road Safety Strategic Plan, 2018-2022
- Goods Movement Strategic Plan, 2017-2021
- Road Characterization Study
