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.
The next PIC for the Main Street/Queen Street Downtown Streetscape EA
will be on April 27, 2017.

As mentioned when the Main and Queen – Downtown Streetscape was first announced, bike lanes are being considered!
The Gore Road Environmental Assessment
from Queen Street to Castlemore Road
Until March 11, the Region of Peel is receiving feedback from the public about a recommended preferred solution and design concept for The Gore Rd. widening project.
From the Open House #2 presentation, one of the key features of the design includes “the use of a ‘Complete Streets’ approach”, including consideration of:
- Continuous sidewalks and /or Multi-Use Trails with safe pedestrian/cyclist crossings
- Space for cyclists, particularly a cycle-track
- Narrowed lanes to support the posted speed.
More information and presentation boards are on the Region of Peel website.
Please contact the Region of Peel to support the Complete Streets approach to road widening, indicating favour for a cycle track! Send comments to either project manager:
