TORONTO, Ont. — Transport Canada is working with municipalities in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) to find ways of integrating the regions’ traffic management systems.
“York Region is one of the fastest growing municipalities and so it is critical that it has the necessary capacity to optimize traffic flow on the regional road networks,” said federal Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development, Belinda Stronach. “We applaud York Region for taking the lead in bringing together municipalities and the Province of Ontario to do this study in partnership with Transport Canada.”
Transport Minister Jean-C. Lapierre said the goal of the project is to improve the mobility of the transportation network in urban areas.
“Integrating the traffic management systems in the GTA will go a long way to advance this objective,” he said.
The study will examine how the various traffic management systems in the GTA can be integrated to provide effective centre-to-centre communications to improve traffic flows. It also aims to develop a regional traveller information system to provide drivers with information on traffic conditions.
