Milton continues to look for ways to improve transportation around town to make it easier for drivers and cyclist to get around.

Transportation improvement projects

Check out what Milton has done to improve transportation for residents and visitors.

Anti-idling and right sizing of municipal fleet

Auto shut down in larger trucks and some pickups as well as ensuring appropriate vehicles for specific tasks to reduce GHG's.

Locations

  • Fleet Vehicles 

Implementation of roundabouts 

Roundabouts make for safer intersections and saves fuel, reducing GHG's.

Locations

  • Town wide

Implementation of warranted 4-way stop intersections 

By only implementing warranted 4-way stops, fuel is saved by drivers not having to brake, then accelerate, reducing GHG's.

Locations

  • Town wide

MIO vision 

Traffic signal activation based on demand load, in order to ease congestion and reduce idling.

Locations

  • Being introduced Town wide

Promotion of cycling tourism, trails and connections 

The Town is working to promote alternative transportation for a healthy and active lifestyle. Trails will be created through subdivision and development processes.

Locations

  • Town Wide

Smart commute  

The Town is working to promote carpooling by Town staff. Three dedicated garage spots have been created.

Locations

  • Town Hall

Traffic signals

We use technology designed to improve traffic flow on heavily travelled areas. This technology is called Miovision TrafficLink System.

We use the Miovision TrafficLink System and information collected to ensure:

  • Performance measures are generated and monitored on demand to solve problems more efficiently
  • Traffic engineering staff can manage traffic signal issues remotely

Positive environmental impacts, including savings in fuel consumption and a reduction in vehicle emissions.

Use of low-rolling coefficient resistance tires in fleet 

Ensuring that the appropriate size of tire is used as well as proper tire pressure to improve efficiency and save fuel.
