1 8.4-1 REPORT Meeting Date: Regional Council For Information DATE: June 17, 2014 REPORT TITLE: PEEL GOODS MOVEMENT STRATEGIC PLAN UPDATE 2014 FROM: Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works OBJECTIVE To provide an update on the progress of the Peel Goods Movement Task Force and Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan. REPORT HIGHLIGHTS Goods movement is a Term of Council Priority (ToCP #15) to improve the safe and efficient movement of goods through and within the Region of Peel. Regional Council approved the Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan in April 2012 with 23 action items to be prioritized over five years. The Peel Goods Movement Task Force, comprising of public and private stakeholders, has been meeting on a regular basis to advance the action items. The tasks identified in 12 of the 23 action items have been substantially completed. These actions have now been operationalized and work will be ongoing to implement them. Ten additional action items have been initiated and one action item will be initiated in DISCUSSION 1. Background The Region of Peel is one of Canada s most important multimodal goods movement hubs, supported by Canada s largest airport and strong rail and road infrastructure. The safe and efficient movement of goods is key to Peel s economy as it is estimated that $1.5 billion worth of goods travel through Peel daily. The movement of both goods and people within and through Peel is becoming increasingly affected by rising levels of congestion. In response, Regional Council made it a priority to improve the efficiency of goods movement in and through Peel. 168

2 8.4-2 June 17, PEEL GOODS MOVEMENT STRATEGIC PLAN - UPDATE Goods movement is a current Term of Council Priority (ToCP #15) that sets out to improve the efficiency of goods movement in Peel with the collaboration of the Peel Goods Movement Task Force. This Term of Council Priority is aligned with Goal 4 of the Region of Peel Strategic Plan to support and influence sustainable transportation systems. The Peel Goods Movement Task Force (the "Task Force"), was established at the direction of Regional Council to bring together key stakeholders from private and public sector companies and agencies that have an interest in the efficient movement of goods. Through the Task Force, substantial progress has been made in completing work to support the goals and mandate of the Task Force. 2. Peel Goods Movement Task Force The Peel Goods Movement Task Force, established in 2009, is comprised of public and private stakeholders. The mission of the Task Force is to support businesses with a transportation system that moves goods and delivers services safely, quickly and efficiently, maximizes economic opportunities and reduces the associated environmental and community impacts. a) Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan Through a series of meetings and consultations, the Members of the Task Force and its Technical Working Group (including area municipal staff), developed the Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan ( Strategic Plan ). Within the Strategic Plan, the Task Force identified an Action Plan of 23 actions to improve how goods are moved within and through Peel. The action items were to be prioritized over a five-year period. The actions have been categorized into four Strategic Directions: 1. Pursue Infrastructure Improvements; 2. Partnership, Communication and Advocacy; 3. Systems Optimization of Existing Infrastructure; and 4. Planning and Forecasting. By recommendation of the Task Force, three subcommittees have been established for each of the Strategic Directions categories. Strategic Directions 1 and 3 have been combined for the purposes of the subcommittees. The subcommittees provide a forum for the Task Force members to work together to complete the action items and monitor project progress. b) Peel Goods Movement Meetings & Events Since the Task Force inception in 2009, several meetings and events have been held each year to advance the Task Force objectives and Strategic Plan. These meetings and events have been essential for collaboration between members and for the advancement of the Strategic Plan action items. The number of meetings and events are monitored and limited, where possible, to recognize the time commitments from various members. Many of the meetings, workshops and events were sponsored and hosted jointly between private and public sector partners. All the meetings and events held have contributed to the Action Plan progress outlined in Section

8 APPENDIX I Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan Update 2014 PEEL REGION GOODS MOVEMENT STRATEGIC PLAN About the Goods Movement Strategic Plan ( ) The Peel Goods Movement Task Force is striving to achieve a safe, convenient, efficient, multimodal, sustainable and integrated goods movement transportation system across the Region. A goods movement transportation system should support a vibrant economy, respect the natural and urban environment, meet the diverse needs of industries and residents and contribute to a high quality of life for its residents. In order to achieve this, Peel s Goods Movement program was developed. It is based off of two goals: 1- Support and influence sustainable transportation systems to ensure that goods are transported in an efficient and timely manner; and 2- Optimize the use of existing infrastructure and capacity and minimize adverse environmental, social and economic impacts caused by goods movement transportation. The goods movement program is described in the Goods Movement Strategic Plan and supported by the Goods Movement Task Force. The Plan is broken down into four strategic directions, which are further broken down into 23 action items. The following pages highlight the status of the twenty three action items aimed at improving the efficiency of goods movement through and within the Region. The action items are organized by Strategic Directions. The successful completion and significant progress made in moving forward these actions is due to the commitment and dedication of Peel Goods Movement Task Force private and public sector partners. The four strategic directions are: 1. Pursue Infrastructure Improvements 2. Partnership, Communication and Advocacy 3. Systems Optimization of Existing Infrastructure 4. Planning and Forecasting 175 2

9 APPENDIX I Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan Update 2014 GOODS MOVEMENT IN PEEL The Regional Context Within Canada, the Region of Peel hosts the largest, most intense cluster of freight distribution and logistics industries, which are located within a one-day drive to more than 135 million Canadian and American consumers. Peel is home to: Toronto Pearson International Airport, Canada s largest and busiest airport by freight and passenger volume Five 400-series highways, which form the most intricate and well-developed network of highways in Ontario The CN intermodal rail/truck facility Two major railway lines (Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railway) Peel's central geographic location results in a large number of goods movement trips passing through the Region annually. Impacting the movement of goods is the fact that the Region is facing, and will continue to face, strong growth related pressures. It is estimated that the average commute time in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) will increase from 82 minutes daily to 109 minutes daily (a 33% increase) by 2031, as predicted by a Metrolinx study. Goods Movement and the Economy Peel s central location within Canada s wealthiest consumer market, and the fact that it contains over 86,600 businesses, has positioned it not only as an economic hub, but also as a major goods movement hub in Canada. Peel's goods movement systems are a cornerstone and key enabler of the Region's economy. Freight transportation, warehousing and manufacturing accounts for almost 27% of Peel s employment. To maintain its competitive edge the Region must ensure the efficient movement of goods through and within it to attract industry and investments. Improving the efficiency of goods movement is a Term of Council Priority

10 APPENDIX I Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan Update PURSUE INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS Action Item Objective Status Next Steps Action1: Prioritize infrastructure improvements to increase truck traffic flow on key corridors Prioritize intersection improvements to benefit goods movement and partner with area municipalities to advance projects that will benefit local traffic and goods movement. An evaluation matrix has been developed to assess and prioritize intersections for improvement based on criteria, including truck volume, collision rates, road network class, road character, land use and type of improvement needed. A report will be finalized in Summer 2014 and will recommend intersections for priority improvements. Action 2: Identify and implement access improvements to Toronto Pearson Airport Action 3: Identify and implement access improvements to CN Brampton and CP Vaughan Intermodal facilities The objectives of both action item 2 & 3 overlap so both studies have been combined. Their objectives are to identify, review and implement truck access to/from Pearson Airport and the CN Brampton and CP Vaughan Intermodal Terminals. Current and future congestion issues in/out of the facilities are being identified and initiatives to address and mitigate these issues will be summarized in a report. The report is being finalized and a peer-review will be conducted in Summer 2014 to verify the technical component of the analysis

11 APPENDIX I Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan Update 2014 Action Item Objective Status Next Steps Action 4: Prioritize improvements to at-grade rail crossings Identify all at-grade rail crossings that occur on Regional roads in Peel and determine which crossings should be prioritized for separation. A discussion paper was completed. All 12 atgrade crossings on Regional Roads were assessed. Three crossings were selected for further examination and two of those crossings are recommended to undergo a feasibility assessment. A report to Regional Council will recommend that a feasibility assessment be undertaken to understand the costs/benefits of grade separation. Action 5: Research truck-only lanes and implement a pilot project Conduct research on truck-only lanes and implement a pilot project for truck only lanes on a Regional Road that experiences heavy truck traffic. In 2013, the Region, in partnership with Metrolinx, MTO and other Canadian municipalities, partnered on a study entitled Investigating the Potential for Truck Lanes in Urban Areas. Several areas for further work with regards to truck lanes were identified. Additional research and data analysis is being undertaken to further advance the objectives of this action item. In progress to
