In an article in The Hamiltonian Spectator, you stated that the traffic modeling related to LRT is at a preliminary and high level stage and that it will become more informed as time passes and variables are injected. That being the case, in its current state, how reliable would you estimate it is?
Can you provide a copy of the modeling report that your comments were based on.
We are updating Council now on the approach we’re taking to project any traffic impacts that could be associated with implementing LRT. This is a preliminary report and more detailed information will be presented to Council when the ongoing studies are complete. All of the information referenced in the preliminary report is reliable.
When the studies are complete we will be working closely with City of Hamilton Traffic staff to develop solutions for any traffic issues that are identified. For example, there may be opportunities to change signal timing, restrict turning movements or add dedicated left turn lanes at some intersections.
The report can be found at the link below. It is agenda item 7.2.
Should you have any further questions and/or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks Trevor for the information.
