GTA West Preferred Corridor

Published on August 19, 2020

The Ontario government is taking steps to make commuting and travel easier in the Greater Toronto Area by confirming the Preferred Route for a new 400-series highway and transit corridor across York, Peel and Halton regions. Advancing the GTA West corridor will reduce travel times for drivers and support economic growth and job creation. The GTA West corridor will include a four-to-six lane 400-series highway, separate infrastructure dedicated for transit and passenger stations, as well as intelligent transportation features and truck parking.

 

Transportation-related construction is vital to Ontario’s economic recovery as a major driver of economic activity and a significant source of employment. The Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH) is an economic driver for the province and addressing transportation needs in the GGH is essential to the competitiveness of our economy as we begin to reopen and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

We will identify and address transportation needs in a study area covering portions of York, Peel and Halton regions. The GTA West corridor will include both highway and transit infrastructure. The corridor will include a four-to-six lane 400-series highway, separate infrastructure dedicated for transit and passenger stations, as well as intelligent transportation features and truck parking. Advancing the GTA West corridor is part of the government’s commitment to reduce travel times and bring relief to drivers across the region.
