Media Release- Parking Progress Not an Option

Parking Progress Not an Option

Hamilton, Ontario (February 4, 2016) – Doug Farraway, candidate for the upcoming by-election in Ward 7, finds the recent decision by the General Issues Committee to “park” expansion and improvements to the HSR on Hamilton Mountain not acceptable.

“The present “mountain” HSR infrastructure is unable to service the needs of the residents living in the two largest wards by population, Wards 7 and 8, let alone service the expanding needs of Wards 6 and 9.” says Mr. Farraway.

“Ward 7 residents deserve better than a promise from HSR that they will present alternative plans later this year.” Mr. Farraway goes on to say, “The HSR must work hand in hand with the Master Transportation Plan working group to ensure that the best plan, for all the people, involving all modes of transportation, is realized.”

Today, the FarrawayFor7 campaign releases his plan for all modes of transportation for Ward 7 and for the “Mountain” in general.

  1. apparently it is an option, and it has been exercised by our Mayor and current Council." We " parked the opportunity to make needed investment and upgrades to failing infrastructure in favor of LRT. Vision has trumped reality.
