Thank you for your email regarding the Dundas Street (Regional Road 5) Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Study from Brant Street (Regional Road 18) to Trafalgar Road (Regional Road 3) within the City of Burlington and Town of Oakville.
The Region is committed to implementing both on-road and off-road Active Transportation (AT) facilities for both walking and cycling, which is consistent with the recently approved Halton Transportation Master Plan – The Road to Change (to 2031). The Region is proposing a wider 4.2m curb lane which can accommodate the BRT and cyclists. Off-road facilities are envisioned to be a sidewalk and a separate bi-directional cycling path. We are also exploring ways to define, delineate and guide off-road facilities by way of signage, pavement markings and coloured material.
Your comments and all feedback from members of the Public regarding the request for on-street cycling tracks will be considered by the Region and Local Municipalities in the development of the Dundas Street Corridor Active Transportation facilities.
