The City of Hamilton is undertaking a review and update of the 2011 Airport Employment Growth District (AEGD) Transportation Master Plan (TMP). The AEGD TMP is a strategic policy document developed to provide a framework which guides future transportation-related studies, projects, initiatives and decisions within AEGD.

This study is following the Municipal Class EA (October 2000, as amended 2007, 2011 & 2015), which will complete Phases 1 for new Roadways and 2 for previously approved Roadways.

The objectives of the AEGD TMP include:

  • Review and update of the multimodal transportation strategy that supports development and vision of the AEGD, in alignment with the guiding principles of the city-wide Transportation Master Plan
  • Re-affirm identified problems or opportunities and recommend alternative solutions to transportation issues anticipated for 2031 horizon year and beyond
  • Modify the AEGD road network to enhance network connectivity, increase redundancy; and address capacity constraints
  • Identify and protect future transportation corridors in relation to ongoing development since 2011/2016, implementability, road functional classification and associated Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) classification.
  • Integrate policies, programs, funding and infrastructure needs;
  • Determine preliminary cost estimates for transportation infrastructure improvement projects in relation to proposed network changes;
  • Review and update the transit network and Transportation Demand Management (TDM) measures and guidelines previously recommended for the AEGD
  • Increase Cycling/Pedestrian/Trails network connectivity to support active transportation needs throughout the AEGD.
