This study, completed by McIntosh Perry for the City of Markham, involved the application of network planning principles to determine the needs for links in the pathway and trails network at five locations within Markham, Ontario, as identified in the City’s Pathways and Trails Master Plan (2009), illustrated above.
The purpose of the feasibility study was to select preferred alternative alignments and connections to existing pathways at each location to meet the City’s objectives of promoting more active, liveable, and walkable communities. Pathways generally include major paved surface paths and trails generally include smaller, soft-surface linkages through more ecologically sensitive areas. Pathways and trails are a vital part of the City’s active transportation network and through this feasibility study, McIntosh Perry completed a review of missing links in the network to determine solutions to provide safe and convenient pedestrian/cyclist access to the neighborhoods and communities.
