City asks: How do you get where you’re going?

Winnipeggers invited to shape the future of Winnipeg’s transportation network

Released: 12:01 p.m.

Winnipeg, MB – Planning for the future of Winnipeg’s transportation network is now underway, and residents are being asked to share how they get where they’re going.

Transportation Master Plan: 2050 (TMP2050) is a multi-component study that will provide the long-term vision for transportation in Winnipeg, and the methods and means to move our city and people into the future. Through a combination of technical research, data analysis, and public and stakeholder engagement, TMP2050 will help ensure our transportation system supports quality of life and economic vitality for years to come.

The study will result in an action plan that includes recommendations on challenges and opportunities relating to existing and future: infrastructure; public rights-of-way; public services such as transit, parking, and traffic management; rules and regulations; and human behaviours. 

Phase 1 of public engagement seeks to learn more about how Winnipeggers use the transportation network and what they value, and understand how transportation could support a better quality of life for residents.

Engagement opportunities include:

Playgrounds, skate parks, and other outdoor recreation amenities to close in response to COVID-19

Released: 2:17 p.m.

Winnipeg, MB – As part of our commitment to ensuring the health and safety of our residents and employees, and in consideration of Winnipeg being elevated to Critical (Red) in the Province of Manitoba’s Pandemic Response System, the City of Winnipeg is closing all City-owned and operated playgrounds, skate parks, and recreational sports fields effective immediately.

While not currently in operation, winter-based outdoor recreation, including City-owned and operated toboggan slides and outdoor rinks are also included in this closure.

These amenities will remain closed under the current public health orders.

City parks and dog parks will remain open at this time; however, residents are reminded to observe appropriate physical distancing while using these spaces. Group sizes are limited to no more than five people.

The public’s cooperation with the closures is appreciated. In the event the closures are not respected, the City will be able to enforce this measure.

The City’s By-Law Enforcement Officers began enforcing the Province of Manitoba’s COVID-19 public health orders as they relate to closed facilities, occupancy limits, and physical distancing requirements on November 6, 2020.

A detailed daily breakdown of the enforcement activities is available online on the Open Data Portal. Possible violations of the public health orders can be reported by contacting 311.
