City of Hamilton to Introduce New Sustainable Transportation Plan

The City of Hamilton is creating a new 20-year plan, Step Forward, to anticipate new growth, but instead of widening existing roads, the city plans on increasing trips made by cycling, walking and public transit, reports the Hamilton Spectator.

According to Al Kirkpatrick, "In the future there are going to be more people and more jobs in Hamilton; to accommodate them, we need to provide transportation…We can’t widen the roads, so we have to get more people on mass transport, more people cycling and walking.”

According to the article, the city will be soliciting public comments, so keep your eyes out for announcements.
