More Active Transportation Options in the Region of Peel
The construction of new cyclist-friendly, multi-use paved pathways have made it easier for Brampton’s residents to get where they need to go.
In 2023, the Region of Peel invested CCBF funding into 3,500 m of new multi-use pathways along Bovaird Drive between Hurontario Street and Highway 410 to expand active transportation options for over 656,000 residents in the City of Brampton.
The new pathways were installed with safety in mind and are AODA-compliant. Along the path, 14 cross-ride intersections were added with 56 bike signal lights. The Region also painted centrelines on the pathways to promote two-way traffic and decrease the risk of accidents and installed signage to promote the pathways as multi-use.
Additionally, the pathway connects to other multi-use trails like the Etobicoke Creek trail system and Sheffield Port West.
