Waterdown Community Node Transportation Management Plan

Notice of Study Completion & 30 Day Public Review

The WTMP study was undertaken in accordance with the Municipal Engineer’s Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) document, October 2000 (amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015). Two PICs and several public and stakeholder consultations were completed during the EA process. At the conclusion of the study a report documenting the planning process undertaken and the recommendations reached was prepared.

The recommended projects for implementation are:

  • Eighteen streets for implementing traffic calming measures
  • Nine streets for implementing traffic infiltration prevention measures
  • Ten locations for improving pedestrian crossings
  • Multiuse path for Hamilton Street and sections of Dundas St. East

These A and A+ projects are pre-approved under the Municipal Class EA process.
The study also recommended transit coverage to a wider area, increasing service hours and a Transit Node facility close to the intersection of Dundas Street East and Hamilton Street East. In addition, the study also recommended to undertake detailed studies for these four improvements.

  • Pedestrian crossing bridge from Sealey Park over the Canadian Pacific rail line to the west of Grindstone Creek
  • Pedestrian crossing bridge across Grindstone Creek from Church Street to Margaret Street Park.
  • Rerouting a cycling connection through Hamilton Street South, Barton Street and Griffin Road, crossing Mill Street, traversing the rear of existing properties on the east side of Mill Street and connecting back to Dundas Street

The Study Report was endorsed by Hamilton City Council on March 30, 2022.
