The Centre for Landscape Research (University of Toronto) studies and interprets emerging conditions associated with transportation, urbanization and building construction. As a research agency, its mandate is to develop and communicate new effective strategies with practical applications.
This project aims to produce a 100-page publication of interviews, case studies and new strategies to relieve gridlock. Improving knowledge of current transportation systems and innovations helps individuals make choices that relieve problems like congestion.
By understanding the existing transportation systems, the causes of increasing volumes of traffic on Highway 401 and its subsidiary road networks can be better understood. Recommended practical solutions to car and truck gridlock will be based on this research.
Green Traffic will result in a report on sustainable multi-modal transportation strategies in the Toronto-Montreal corridor.
Results will be posted upon receipt of a final report.
