Walking is a part of everyday life and is an efficient, cost effective and healthy way to travel around Mississauga. The plan will shape how pedestrian connections are designed and implemented across our neighbourhoods, helping to enhance and create safe places for people to walk in Mississauga. The plan will act as a go-to reference for pedestrian infrastructure projects until 2041, supporting the City’s commitment to a Vision Zero approach.
The Pedestrian Master Plan project is being led by the City of Mississauga. A consultant team led by Urban Systems and supported by Dilion Consulting is providing specialized expertise in active transportation and community engagement.
The project will:
- review the City’s existing pedestrian network, identifying gaps and opportunities for future infrastructure projects
- identify key destinations for pedestrians (e.g. transit stops, schools, local amenities etc.)
- analyse how growth and intensification will impact existing and future pedestrian infrastructure
- set short, medium and long-term service delivery and project priorities
- review best practices of pedestrian infrastructure and network design
