Study process1
Study Process

Phase 1: Launching

This initial stage sought out to learn about the current state of walking and cycling in Winnipeg and to identify key stakeholders and groups that would be instrumental to the process – including appointing a Stakeholder Advisory Committee to provide input throughout the life of the project. This phase involved collecting key information – such as local pedestrian and cyclist travel behaviours, existing infrastructure, programs and policy.

Phase 3: Develop the Plans & Strategies

Having compiled and processed input received from the public, City staff, and stakeholders, we have developed future network plans for walking and cycling, as well as a number of recommended actions for policies, standards, programs, and partnerships. The recommended actions encompass a full range of engineering, encouragement, and education measures.

Phase 2: Create the Vision

This phase involved developing a vision, goals and strategic directions to guide the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies. Extensive public engagement and consultation took place during this phase to inform the vision and directions, and to gather critical feedback on walking and cycling issues & opportunities in Winnipeg today.

Phase 4: Final Strategies

The final phase involves developing an affordable and manageable approach to implement the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies in the short to long –term. The final Strategies will be presented as two coherent documents, one dedicated to walking and the other to cycling.
