The City of Brampton is currently looking at design alternatives for approximately 7-km of cycling facilities on:
- Vodden Street, extending from Isabella Street to Howden Boulevard;
- Howden Boulevard, from Williams Parkway to Central Park Drive; and
- Hanover Road, between Howden Boulevard and Central Park Drive.
This will provide an east-west cycling route across Brampton, linking the destinations such as Downtown Brampton, Duggan Park, Century Gardens Recreation Centre, North Park Secondary School, Chinguacousy Park and a number of other amenities. The corridors will also connect with many existing north-south trails, such as the Etobicoke Creek, Esker Lake and Chinguacousy Recreational Trails for wider active transportation connectivity and access. Throughout the design process, there will be opportunities for the public to provide input.
This project is one of the key priorities in building a Safe and Green city as outlined in Brampton 2040 Vision. By providing a continuous and connected east-west corridor of separated cycling facilities, the intent is to provide existing and future cyclists with safer and more comfortable cycling options. The access to existing north-south trails and other modes of transportation will help to improve recreational and commuting travel options.
