Active Transportation Plan - Phase II

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Introduction

Moncton’s current Active Transportation Plan, which was adopted in 2003, is now complete and many of its recommendations have been implemented over the past 15 years or so.

The Active Transportation Plan - Phase II project will look at the City as a whole to review and assess the situation specifically for pedestrians and cyclists, then propose recommendations to improve access, comfort, and safety.

Definition

Active Transportation (AT) includes any form of mostly human-powered transportation, such as walking, cycling, rolling (wheelchair, rollerblading, scootering, skateboarding), or using a mobility device.

Phase II will focus on everyday AT trips, such as walking to school, cycling to work, walking the dog, accessing public transit, and running errands, all without using a car.

Why do we need an AT Plan?

This plan will have a long-term impact for Moncton residents, as it will guide municipal employees on the planning, design, and implementation of active transportation infrastructure over the next 20+ years.

This includes:

  • where sidewalks go, how wide they are, and how they are maintained;
  • where cycling facilities go, what kind of facility (physically separated, bike lane, or mixed traffic), and how they are maintained;
  • where trails go, what the surface material is, how they are maintained;
  • how to design connections between sidewalks/trails and across roadways at crossings and intersections;
  • what programs and policies are needed to support everyday active transportation.

This plan will study the needs for Moncton proper, but does take into account the connections to adjacent communities, in particular Dieppe and Riverview.

To be clear, the plan will consider how people access public transit through active transportation, but will not explore Codiac Transpo’s operations (such as where routes go and how frequently they run).

Why should you care about the AT Plan?

This Plan will recommend a complete network of active transportation amenities that will provide all residents of Moncton with a convenient, safe, and healthy way to get around the City without requiring the use of a personal vehicle.

The Plan will also recommend improvements to achieve this vision; it aligns with the PlanMoncton Municipal Plan by providing mobility options to – and along – the City’s mixed-use centres and corridors, and highlights the connection between land use and transportation.

Future studies will be carried out on specific road corridors to consider how to implement the plan recommendations.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    This round of public engagement is focused on getting your feedback on the draft active transportation network and other recommendations. Your feedback will be used to refine the network. Once the network is finalized, priorities will be established over a 10 to 15 year time frame.

    If you have any questions or comments, you can send us a note at letschat@moncton.ca(External link)

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The following survey is intended to get a better understanding of the experiences, desires and needs of people who live, work, and/or play in the City of Moncton, as they relate to Active Transportation (AT) – as in, using AT for getting from point A to point B.

    The goal of this project is to guide the City’s plans for infrastructure improvement (streets, sidewalks, trails) over the next 20+ years, with a lens on Active Transportation. 

    The survey should take 5-7 minutes to fill out.

    If you have any questions or comments, you can send us a note at letschat@moncton.ca
