The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) plans to create a system of greenspaces along the Lake Ontario shoreline in Toronto between Bluffer’s Park and East Point Park/Highland Creek. The proposed project will: protect and enhance terrestrial and aquatic habitat, improve the natural heritage system, manage public safety and property risk, and provide an enjoyable waterfront experience.
Over the years, municipalities have put considerable effort into improving the pedestrian and cycling network by providing dedicated facilities for safe, active transportation users. McIntosh Perry understands the challenges that municipalities are facing and recognizes/understands the importance of promoting alternative modes of transportation to reduce dependence on automobiles. This renewal project will enhance numerous modes of transportation and public spaces by providing connectivity between existing facilities and enhance safety for all road users in accordance with Vision Zero policies. It will improve many neighborhoods for pedestrians as new connecting links are formed and access to the Bluff is enhanced. New pathways along existing bus routes will promote the use of transit and with the adjacent local parks and schools, active transportation will be encouraged as new connecting links are formed within the region’s overall pedestrian and cycling network.
McIntosh Perry is providing a full range of services for this project, including project management, environmental engineering, transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering, and stormwater management.
