Getting Toronto Moving : An Update on Phase 2 of the Congestion Management Plan

Earlier this year, I announced Phase 2 of Toronto’s Congestion Management Plan, and I’m pleased to let you know that the city is taking action this fall to combat gridlock and congestion.

Thanks to Big Data, or vehicular probe data, which I helped bring forward earlier this term, city staff have identified the 10 most congested intersections or “hot spots” across the city.

Transportation staff are currently implementing targeted solutions – from signal retiming to increasing “green time” at traffic lights to capital improvements – in order to improve traffic flow at each of the 10 locations.

You can read about the actions being taken at each intersection as well as the timelines for completion here.
