    What is your position on the following?

    1 LRT for Hamilton
    2 Mid-Peninsular Highway to link 407 with 403 south of city

    Also what do you define as urban sprawl?

    I’m an Ancaster resident since Jan 2010. Looking forward to your reply.

  • Thank you for your questions Roger.

    1) I believe that the LRT will cause more gridlock in downtown Hamilton, tax increases, and overall high operating expenses. Although the “province has promised 100 per cent capital funding for rapid transit in Hamilton,”* they have “not committed to a specific system or stipulated what costs it will cover, creating uncertainty over local taxpayer contributions.”* It’s estimated that the LRT’s operating costs will average around $12.5 million per year. Where will this money come from? Our hard earned tax dollars which will most likely skyrocket.
    As an alternative, I recommend that we increase bus service and investigate other inexpensive options. The LRT debate has gone on far too long in city council and we should focus on other options.

    2) As far as I know, the mid-peninsula highway development plan has been put on hold by the province. I don’t think it would benefit travellers or commuters. The city should focus on widening existing roadways like the LINC and Red Hill Parkway.

    I would define urban sprawl as populations growing, moving and developing outwards from the city centre towards rural areas. With urban sprawl, the city needs to upgrade infrastructure and ensure that green space is preserved.
