The City of Hamilton has completed a transportation management study for the Waterdown area.
Waterdown is a fast-growing community located north in the City of Hamilton and south-west of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Bordered on the south and east sides by the Niagara Escarpment, the community is somewhat geographically isolated from the rest of the City and neighbouring communities.
Since 1996, the community’s population has almost doubled to its current level of more than 20,000 people. Significant growth is expected over the next 10 years as new residents continue to be attracted by Waterdown’s pleasant small-town atmosphere, cultural heritage resources and its picturesque setting in the Niagara Escarpment and Ontario’s Greenbelt. With this growth, Waterdown’s transportation network capacity is being stressed, and complaints of congestion, neighbourhood traffic infiltration, speeding and safety concerns are common.
The purpose of the study is to:
- address existing issues
- identify and plan for future transportation needs that support the future developments planned
This study is being completed following the requirements of Phase 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class EA process. The study will consider and review options for the transportation network, to accommodate multiple modes of travel.
This study is being carried out in collaboration with the Waterdown Community Node Secondary Plan study.
Study Status: Completed (2022)
