Transportation Master Plan

The Town of East Gwillimbury is projected to experience significant population and employment growth over the next 30 years. In response, the safe, efficient and reliable movement of people and goods will become increasingly important and challenging. The Town’s transportation system will need to accommodate this growth. By adopting this Transportation Master Plan (TMP), East Gwillimbury is committed to managing growth in a responsible manner, by engaging in sustainable transportation policies and initiatives that are compatible to those developed by York Region and the Province of Ontario.

By 2031, the Region’s travel demand model projects local gridlock – even with several improvements in place. This wrongly places the financial burden to fund these new roads and services on East Gwillimbury and York Region. This TMP represents the Town’s commitment to a quality of life second to none in Canada. As East Gwillimbury grows, it must do so responsibly and in a sustainable manner. This TMP will help guide the future of the Town to ensure economic vitality, social well-being and environmental sustainability.
