Main and Queen – Downtown Streetscape27 Feb 2017, Posted by Bicycle Friendly Business Program, Brampton Cycling, Cycling Benefits - Economics, Cycling Benefits - Environment, Cycling Safety, Region of Peel Cycling in
The City of Brampton has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment for streetscaping the downtown to create an aesthetically beautiful environment to boost the image and awareness of the downtown revitalization efforts. The main objectives are to create a complete street that will capitalize the walkability and pedestrian capacity downtown, to animate these streets and to become a place making destination capturing the heart of Bramptonians and visitors.
This study will define the problem, identify and evaluate alternative solutions to the problem, evaluate alternative design concepts for the solution, recommend a preferred design concept and assess potential impacts and identify mitigation measures associated with the preferred design.
This exciting project is being evaluated by Brampton staff. If you weren’t able to make it out to the PIC Meeting on February 23, it’s no problem. The panels and design alternatives are available online.
One of the design concepts, particularly noteworthy for cycling modal share, is “Design Alternative 2“.
- Space for a “Market Zone”
- Clearway and Furniture Zones
- A raised Bicycle Lane, separated by automobile traffic by a curb/gutter.
Other noteworthy considerations are around the Downtown Outdoor Furniture, including cycling “ring and posts”, and other amenities to support cycling. Perhaps a repair station?
