Draft Transportation Master Plan

The City of Greater Sudbury has completed the draft version of its Transportation Master Plan and will be presenting the plan to City Council on Tuesday, May 12. The Master Plan is an update from the 2005 study and focuses on a sustainable transportation network for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists along with their projected needs up until the year 2031.

The objectives of this study are to develop a plan that supports the transportation vision and principles through improvement of the existing road network, enhancement and expansion of active transportation facilities; and the incorporation and development of additional transportation policies.

Key opportunities in Greater Sudbury include creating transportation choices to better support biking, walking, and transit at this time; identifying intersections and corridors that would benefit from reduced traffic congestion; creating a transportation network which offers more direct routing; and providing the transportation network needed to support intensified land use in designated growth areas.

Once presented, City Council will have an opportunity to review the plan and provide feedback to staff. The public will also be able to review the plan which will be posted on the City’s website.  The City will notify the community of future opportunities to provide feedback.

Once finalized, the Transportation Master Plan will be appended to the City of Greater Sudbury’s Official Plan.
