Cycling Facility on Claremont Access

In January 2016, City Council directed staff to investigate:

  • design options for a cycling facility on the Claremont Access
  • pedestrian accommodations

Study area

The study area (PDF, 202 KB) is about 2.5 km long, from the base of the Claremont Access near Wellington Street to Upper James Street and continuing along the Brow to West 5th Street.

The study also includes possible linkages along this route to parks, trails, and intersecting streets.

Hamilton's Cycling Master Plan proposes various forms of infrastructure along this corridor, including bike lanes and multi-use trails, to provide a safer, efficient, and comfortable network to encourage cycling.

Public consultation
