ABOUT THE PROJECT
The City of Calgary is doing a Truck Travel Improvement Study as part of the implementation of the Goods Movement Strategy to learn about how we can improve the travel experience for those who work in the trucking industry.
We will be looking at ways to improve the flow of trucks, safety for all road users, and identifying problem locations. The data and feedback we collect will help us identify safety concerns and plan for future road improvements.
The study will specifically:
- Identify and map specific intersections and corridors within Calgary where truck travel improvement measures could be applied, subject to funding availability. This could include improved signal timing, turning lane extensions, truck lanes, or safety countermeasures.
- Present, rank and summarize these improvements and interventions according to the benefits associated with improved safety, travel time (reduction in delay), greenhouse gas emissions, and linkages with economic development of the goods movement sector, based on modelling analysis.
The outcomes of this study will help us improve the last kilometer of truck deliveries.
PROVIDE YOUR INPUT
The project team is looking for information regarding various intersections and roadways that have a negative impact on goods movement throughout Calgary. We’re asking participants to pin problem locations and provide feedback on the specific issue at that site so The City of Calgary can continue to improve its prioritization of infrastructure projects.
Please continue by filling out the questions below.
The What We Heard report for this phase of the Goods Movement Strategy will be available in Q2 2020. This phase of the Goods Movement Strategy will end once the study has been completed and approved.
