At General Committee this week, the 2021 Annual Status Update of Mississauga’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP) was received showing that more than half (38) of the 57 short-term actions are underway, as of June 2021. Of the plan’s 91 actions in total, 54 actions are in progress and 10 are complete.
“The 2021 Annual Status Update of Mississauga’s first Transportation Master Plan shows that good progress is being made on this important plan,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “As we work to build a world-class, transit-oriented city, we are implementing changes that make moving through and around Mississauga safer and easier for residents and businesses. Over the last year, we’ve taken immediate action to advance Vision Zero and have invested in longer-term initiatives to address infrastructure improvements.”
Endorsed by Council in May 2019, the TMP guides the development of Mississauga’s transportation system to 2041. The TMP outlines 91 actions to be delivered in the short term (2020-2024), medium term (2025-2034), or long term (2035 and after). This is the second annual report on the implementation of actions in the plan.
In the past 12 months, the City has:
“The annual status updates are a key component of the TMP’s monitoring program, which ensures that progress of this plan can be tracked by Council and the public,” said Geoff Wright, Commissioner, Transportation and Works. “The first TMP annual status update was delivered in May 2020 during a critical time for Mississauga as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our region became known. This second annual status update comes while the City continues to experience the effects of the pandemic. While a complete understanding of how the pandemic affects the transportation system will be ongoing, we remain committed to continue to advance the TMP’s Vision and Goals.”
Looking forward, between May 2021 and May 2022 many actions are set to be completed including:
The TMP was produced from the findings of a two-year study that combined research and public engagement about the future of mobility in the city. Progress on the actions is tracked and reported annually. Routine updates to the TMP will take place in coordination with updates to the Mississauga Official Plan.
The TMP is the foundation of many transportation policies, plans and initiatives. Full report and annual updates can be found here.
