November 16, 2012
Dear Sir / Madam:
RE: GTA West Corridor Planning and Environmental Assessment (EA) Study
Release of Final Transportation Development Strategy Report
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is pleased to inform you that the GTA West Transportation Development
Strategy Report has been finalized, following the additional analysis and consultation in the Halton area.
The purpose of the study is to proactively plan for future infrastructure needs by examining long-term transportation
problems and opportunities to the year 2031 and considering options to provide efficient movement for people and goods
between urban areas in the GTA West Corridor Preliminary Study Area.
The final Strategy documents the planning process followed in Stage 1 of the GTA West Corridor Planning and EA Study,
including the assessment and evaluation of the area transportation system alternatives and a recommendation for the
preferred alternative to be carried forward. The completion of the Transportation Development Strategy represents the
conclusion of the first stage of the EA study and enables MTO to commence Stage 2 of the EA, anticipated in late 2013.
The final report, executive summary and appendices are now available on the study website (www.gta-west.com) and at
the attached list of local libraries and clerks offices beginning November 16, 2012. The report will be available for a 45-day
public review period.
Comments can be provided on the project website at http://www.gta-west.com/comment-form.php or can be emailed to
Please note that all comments received during the 45 day review period will be addressed in Stage 2 of the EA.
