The City’s Transportation Planning team is searching for two community members from Wards 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 14 to represent their neighbours at the Truck Advisory Focus Group, a part of the Truck Route Master Plan Study Update.

Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

The City’s Transportation Planning team is searching for two community members from Wards 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 14 to represent their neighbours at the Truck Advisory Focus Group, a part of the Truck Route Master Plan Study Update.

For more details, please continue reading below…

The City’s Traffic Operations and Engineering Departments describe the following purposes of Hamilton’s Truck Route Network:

    • Support safe and timely movement of goods and services
    • Recognize and try to limit the impacts of truck traffic on the interests of the greater community such as safety, congestion, noise, and air quality
    • Protect the City’s road infrastructure that cannot bear heavy loads or roads where truck traffic would be unsuitable (e.g. narrow lanes, weight restrictions on bridges).

As the City begins to review the current Truck Route Master Plan, the Truck Advisory Focus Group is searching for community members to “represent community and stakeholder’s interests and provide two-way  communication between the City and the community regarding the Truck Route Master Plan.”

The group will be expected to meet at least three times during the duration of the study and the expectations for group members are as follows:

  • Commitment to attend all TAG meetings and diligently participation in an
    environment that encourages respectful dialogue with varying points of view,
  • Actively voice opinions and concerns, and open-mindedly consider everyone else’s opinions and concerns,
  • Information sharing and input that will be considered as part of the Truck Route Study that will become part of the public record,
  • Collaboratively work with the project team and other members of the TAG, as partners, to achieve the study goals and objectives,
  • Non-mandatory attendance at other stakeholder meetings, to audit transparency of the engagement/consultation process.
