Origin

(October 28, 2013) Report from the General Manager, Transportation Services

Summary

This purpose of this report is to provide an update to the April 30, 2013 staff report to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee on “Traffic Congestion Management and Traffic Signal Coordination” as well as the comprehensive Congestion Management Plan.

 

The April 30, 2013 staff report provided an overview on congestion and presented near- term and long-term projects that focused primarily on traffic cameras, variable message signs, and upgrades to the Traffic Operations Centre, all with a goal of supporting active traffic management throughout the city. The report provides a more comprehensive five-year Congestion Management Plan that includes additional strategies to address congestion within the City of Toronto.

 

The goal of the five-year Congestion Management Plan is to better manage congestion and improve safety through innovation and technology that will maximize the efficiency, reliability and sustainability of the road network for all users while reducing the impacts on the environment.

 

The Plan provides a framework for a range of projects and activities that addresses a series of eight technical elements:

 

-           Intelligent Transportation Systems;         -          Curb-side Management;

-           Congestion and Engineering Studies;      -          Support of all modes of Transportation

-           Incident and Event Response;                 -          Traveller Information; and

-           Construction Coordination;                     -          Traffic Operations Centre.
