Temporary cameras being installed on Linc and RHVP for transportation study

HAMILTON, ON – Beginning Sunday, April 21, temporary cameras will be installed on the Lincoln M. Alexander Parkway and the Red Hill Valley Parkway (RHVP) to facilitate a transportation study.

The City is undertaking this study to determine traffic volumes for motorists that use these parkways as a short-cut instead of using Highway 403 and the Queen Elizabeth Way. By capturing images of vehicles and license plates at either end of the Linc and the RHVP, the City will be able to track the number of vehicles that travel the full length of both parkways.

Digital cameras will be placed on the median and road side of both roadways to capture images of traffic showing the type of vehicle and its license plate number. Cameras will be setup at the west end of the Linc and the north end of RHVP from Sunday, April 21, 2019 until Saturday, May 4, 2019. The results of this study will be reported to Council in Fall 2019.

The City of Hamilton collects information under authority of Section 227 of the Municipal Act, 2001. Any personal information collected will be used for this study only.
