Niagara Region is currently consulting on the development of Transportation Master Plan. Included in the plan will be consideration for the goods movement industry, including the trucking sector. If carriers are interested in providing input directly to the Region, there are four upcoming public consultation sessions being held.
- February 21 – Welland (Civic Square)
- February 22 – St. Catharines (Kiwanis Aquatic Centre)
- March 2 – Niagara Falls (Gale Centre)
- March 1 – Grimsby (Council Chambers)
All public information centres are 5:30 to 8 p.m. with the main presentation starting at 6:30 p.m.
This is a good opportunity for interested carriers to show support for infrastructure initiatives that provide better connections to Provincial highway system, international border crossings and for truck activity in Niagara Region.
