Council votes against Williams Parkway expansion
Over the past couple of months, our team has been working closely with city councillors and staff to prioritize active transportation over increased car traffic.
On November 18, council voted unanimously against expanding Williams Parkway.
They chose not to spend millions of dollars to widen the road, which would worsen congestion over time. Instead, they saved money that can now be used to improve active transportation infrastructure and green spaces.
This decision shows that council is committed to achieving its climate targets and protecting the health and well-being of residents.
Let’s celebrate Brampton for leading the way for suburban cities across Canada.
This was all possible because of the hundreds of community members who emailed Mayor Patrick Brown and councillors.
