Complete Streets Report for Ward 14

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Hamilton is working to create a Complete Streets Report to help improve road safety throughout neighbourhoods in Ward 14. The study area includes all 11 neighbourhoods of Ward 14.

In response to concerns from residents of Ward 14 and in an effort to further the progress being made through Hamilton’s Strategic Road Safety Program and Vision Zero Action Plan, the City of Hamilton has engaged CIMA+ to create a report that will identify Complete Streets recommendations for Ward 14. The recommendations will look to tackle the key elements of concerns previously raised, including but not limited to:

  • High Speeds: reduction of traffic speeds in residential areas through the use of traffic calming measures.
  • Driver Behaviour: known locations of poor driver compliance and aggressive driving will be assessed, to identify preventative design solutions.
  • Safety: collision prone locations will be assessed to identify likely causes and opportunities for safety improvements. Roads are not just for cars; the study will also focus on pedestrian and cyclist safety
  • Mobility: locations of known connectivity issues for all modes (cars, pedestrians, and bikes) will be assessed to identify gaps in the network and identify access and mobility improvements.

This project is specifically focused on improving safety and operations along residential and collector streets in Ward 14 only – arterial roads will not be a part of this project since they are already under consideration as part of the ongoing Complete Livable Better Streets Design Manual Project.

We want to hear from you!

We want to hear your thoughts on:

  • Known problems of the existing roads
  • Do the existing roads suit all your needs: both in travel by car and on foot/by bike?
  • How would you like to see your neighbourhood roads changed?

Preliminary Recommendations Mapping

10 months

This mapping tool details location-specific recommendations identified by the ongoing Complete Streets Report study for Ward 14. Each dot on the map represents a recommendation that is categorized by the issues they tackle:


 Cut through Traffic

 Existing Traffic Operations

 Insufficient Lighting

 Missing or Inappropriate Pedestrian/Cycling Facilities

 Other

 Parking

 Pedestrian Safety/Accessibility

 Speed Concerns/Aggressive Driving/Traffic Calming

 Stop Compliance

 Traffic Control Request


Select a dot on the map to find out more about each recommendation, including their anticipated implementation type: Quick Win, Short-Term Improvement and/or Further Analysis Required. 

Further detail on the strategy behind these recommendations is included in the Public Information Centre #2 presentation. Following public feedback, these preliminary recommendations will be confirmed and further detailed in the final Complete Streets Study Report, anticipated Fall 2021.

Comments are now closed

As a reminder, this project is focused on only the residential and collector roads in Ward 14. Arterial roads will be considered in the Complete Livable, Better Streets Design Manual.

CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded.

We want to better understand your experiences in Ward 14 – what challenges do you see, and where do you see them? 

Use the mapping tool to identify where the concerns are. If you see a pin already placed at a spot you were going to identify as an issue, please continue to place another pin there. Having multiple pins on one location will help our team to determine the priorities for implementation within Ward 14.

This project is focused on Residential and Collector Roads in Ward 14 Only. Arterial Roads will be considered in the City’s ongoing Complete, Livable, Better Streets Design Manual process.
