Active Transportation Action Plan

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

King Township is currently developing an action plan to strategically implement the Transportation Master Plan’s recommended active transportation network including new and upgraded sidewalks, multi-use pathways, paved shoulders, off-road trails, signed on-road cycling routes and mid-block crossings.

To prioritize these projects, we are inviting members of the public to share their feedback and opinions on how projects should be prioritized. Your input will help inform when and where the Township’s active transportation projects get built, create a more comfortable environment for residents to walk and cycle to their destinations.

    Pave the bike paths. A layer of gravel is added in the Summer and it just makes things mushy to ride as the gravel isn’t compacted down. In our community since I’ve lived here it’s speeding speeding and more speeding....everyone has complained, it’s now a neighbourhood conversation piece. It’s not safe, and we’ve all complained....install speed humps (not speed bumps) as Hillfarm has installed The path at Taska park ends behind the soccer net, and doesn’t connect to the path that starts at Hillfarm and leads to the park ...it’s difficult to ride the terrain and distance all the way over the soccer field to get to the park.... To cross to the south side of king road, from the sidewalk exiting Greenhill Lane, you can only cross from one side...and then there’s no sidewalk or safe walking, or riding space to walk Eestbom King road to the recreation Center....or the Daisy Mart, or King learning Center etc etc There’s no room for biking on 27, or King Road and there’s lots of bikers....the roads are already inadequate for the amount of cars commuting out of Nobleton, add in the bikers riding for sport on the roads and it’s just a safety hazard

    Thank you for your feedback. There is a separate traffic calming study and we will pass on your comments related to speeding. 

    We will include these Nobleton connections and trail surface comments in our review. 

    The paved shoulders for cycling on Regional Roads such as King Road and Hwy 27 are outside the scope of this project, as they are under the jurisdiction of York Region. However, we will pass on this feedback to the Region.

    Are there any plans for creating a guard rail or barrier to protect pedestrians and cyclists who want to use the sidewalk along King Road between Burns Avenue and Keele Street? we feel unsafe using the sidewalk that is one foot away from the traffic-laden king road (and how fast those cars travel too!) Please consider this protection as you streetscape.

    Annad Asked 10 days ago

    Thank you for your feedback. The current streetscaping project will improve the section from Burns Ave to Keele Street with a multi-use path and other improvements.

    Has the possibility of closing one lane in each direction along King Rd from Dufferin to Jane during the summer months for cycling been considered?

    Fausto Rossetto Asked 17 days ago

    King Road (roadway portion) is under the jurisdiction of York Region, not King the Township. We will put this idea forward to York Region. 

    There is a Township project currently underway, in partnership with the Region, to improve the streetscaping on King Road. This includes sidewalk replacement, a multi-use path, tree plantings, flower poles, street furniture and lighting.

    Will there be a sidewalk along Highway 27 from Diana Road, north to connect with the Tribute Homes community? Or at least something to make it safer to connect to Nobleton central without using a car ie. barriers of some type

    ddiluca Asked 19 days ago

    Thank you for your feedback. We will include Hwy 27 from Diana Road to Nobleton in our review.

    Will these offroad trails be dirt trails or gravel trail. By dirt trails I mean like a trail system with difficulty, and features like berms, jumps, etc.

    Mihir Asked 20 days ago

    Trail surface will be determined during the design phase and is beyond the scope of our study. In general, the trails identified are intended to be multi-use and not exclusively for mountain biking.

    Can someone look at Rebellion Way north of the mailboxes/statue in Lloydtown? It’s a very dangerous stretch of road for those walking.

    Outramwe Asked 22 days ago

    Thank you for your feedback. We will include Rebellion Way in our review.

    I noticed in the survey that no mention is made regarding adding public washrooms anywhere. Surely the COVID-19 crisis is showing us that we cannot rely on retail businesses to provide washroom access any longer. I have seen such washrooms that are constructed entirely of metal, are indestructible and are relatively inexpensive. What about composting toilets? What about providing them for much of the year and closing them once winter temps really set in? Is providing washrooms of any kind being considered? If not, why not? If so, what is being considered? Thank you. Susan Beharriell

    sbeharriell Asked 26 days ago

    Thank you for the feedback. While not part of the focus of the study, we will consider the addition of trail amenities such as washrooms as part of the review and recommendations.

    Will sidewalks be put in at Hertiage and Hambly area? We are in need!

    Asked about 1 month ago

    While the Transportation Master Plan did not identify the need for sidewalks in the Heritage and Hambly area of King City, we will review this area as part of this active transportation prioritization study.
