Pedestrian Master Plan

About the project

Walking is a part of everyday life and is an efficient, cost effective and healthy way to travel around Mississauga. The City of Mississauga is developing its first ever Pedestrian Master Plan. The plan will shape how pedestrian connections are designed and implemented across our neighbourhoods, helping to enhance and create safe places for people to walk in Mississauga. The plan will act as a go-to reference for pedestrian infrastructure projects until 2041, supporting the City's commitment to a Vision Zero approach.

The project will:

  • review the City's existing pedestrian network, identifying gaps and opportunities for future infrastructure projects
  • identify key destinations for pedestrians (e.g. transit stops, schools, local amenities etc.)
  • analyse how growth and intensification will impact existing and future pedestrian infrastructure
  • set short, medium and long-term service delivery and project priorities
  • review best practices of pedestrian infrastructure and network design

The Pedestrian Master Plan project is being led by the City of Mississauga. A consultant team led by Urban Systems and supported by Dilion Consulting is providing specialized expertise in active transportation and community engagement.

As a daily walker in the Lake Aquatane Park I have seen some very dangerous areas in the path. Some areas have gouged out pieces and generally not the safest walk for some seniors who suffer from lessened balance. A good look would be very worthwhile to improve its safety. Thank you.

I believe that these days we need a critical plan to deal with pedestrian and cycling safety. In an ideal world i imagine city streets where the cars are our last priority.Pedestrians first, Cyclists second and then cars.It actually works that way in some european towns where cars stop for you any time they see you even looking to cross. I know it is a dream... and will take decades ... but it can be done if we all accept it as necessary!

The planned trail location at Premium way and Dickson rd. will be next to an above ground valve compound that I understand will have a large, high fence. This could pose as a visual obstruction to cars, pedestrians and rollers of all types.

Overall in Ward 10, I am happy about the volume of Multi trails and accessible sidewalk areas. I think there needs to be some more education regarding movement and right of way in crowded areas. Mostly, the greatest concern is the habits of drivers in our residential areas. Many are distracted, speeding and far too many are not stopping at Stop Sign intersections, which for me personally has resulted in close calls on several occasions. Perhaps a police enforcement blitz??

I have a site specific area of concern regarding the safety of PEDESTRIANS/CYCLISTS with the future construction of a proposed Multi-Use trail at the intersection of Premium Way and Dickson Road. At this intersection there is a very large and imposing "Above Ground Valve Compound" under construction by Trans Northern Pipeline Inc.. The pipes will be transporting Aviation (Jet) Fuel - a highly volatile commodity. There is currently 1 of 2 pipes and valves installed along with an electrical shed immediately next to where this walking/cycle path will be placed. There are a number of concerns for pedestrians/cyclist walking and riding here - According to the Mississauga Cycling Plan of 2018 the standard multi-use trail requires a "bend-in" or "bend-out" when the trail comes to an intersection. At this specific intersection - we have been told by city staff that this would not be possible here due to lack of space. For this reason, there are grave concerns that pedestrians or cyclists will not slow down and simply walk across the intersection. The sight lines for vehicles approaching the intersection from Dickson Road will be obscured because of the compound fencing so close to the trail and corner. Likewise it will also be very difficult for drivers to see pedestrians or cyclists approaching the intersection along Premium Way. At that 3way stop intersection, I assume that it its the responsibility of every pedestrian and cyclist to stop before crossing the Dickson Road portion but I fear that this will not happen, especially as cyclists are riding along a very straight expanse of the pathway before reaching that point. This compound will obscure their ability to see vehicles approaching.The City of Mississauga unanimously passed a resolution on Aug. 5 requesting that Trans Northern Pipelines relocate this compound - to date this is not assured and if it is not moved it poses a severe danger to pedestrians and cyclists.Not only are sight lines obscured for all users of this intersection but if there is ever a fuel leak or explosion here, there will likely be loss of life.I suggest anyone reading this go to look at this intersection and you will recognize why this is of not only concern to me but everyone in this area. I encourage you to please do so and contact your councillor and the mayor.
