detour_small

Throughout the summer Beckett Drive, otherwise commonly known as the Queen Street Hill, has been closed to all vehicular traffic since June. During that time route 34 UPPER PARADISE has been on detour using James Mountain Road.

This mountain access has become congested at times due to the increase in general traffic. During times of such congestion the bus routes which use this access will be intermittently detoured via the Jolley Cut. This intermittent detour is expected to conclude once Queen Street Hill reopens.

The detour is as per below:

HSR Routing Changes Proposed for December

Next Thursday morning staff from the Public Works department are proposing some permanent changes to a handful of routes. These changes would go into effect on December 29th if they are approved for implementation.

The routes affected are 5E DELAWARE, 33 SANATORIUM, 35 COLLEGE and 52 DUNDAS. Below is a wrap-up of the proposals from the report to committee.

The report states that Wherever possible, conventional fixed-route public transit service should take full advantage of roadway layouts that provide for direct travel, thereby minimizing on-bus travel time for customers. In addition, access to the bus routes should be planned to ensure that the walk to the route be within an acceptable distance, where provided for by the layout of collector and local streets, and pedestrian walkways, that connect to the arterial roads. Wherever possible in low-density neighbourhoods, transit routes should be positioned to minimize route duplication (no more than one bus route on a street section).

The recommended modifications to on-street bus routings result in improvements to directness of routing and improved ease of customer understanding of routes, while maintaining acceptable route coverage for the affected neighbourhoods.

These proposals were approved by the Public Works Committee on August 15th, 2013.

The City of Hamilton will be closing Fennel Avenue West between West 5th Street and Garth Street for the Ride to Conquer Cancer event on the morning of Sunday, June 9th 2013 from 6:00 am – 9:00 am.

UPDATE: Although the road will be closed to all traffic, Hamilton Police will allow HSR buses ONLY on Fennell Avenue between West 5th and Garth on Sunday morning. There may be minor delays especially if a bus is present during the heavy cyclist departure times. The Police will do their best to minimize delays but cannot guarantee it.

On the morning of the event operations will make a decision to implement the detour IF it is deemed necessary.

The below is the planned detour route for routes 33 SANATORIUM and 34 UPPER PARADISE between 6am – 9am. This detour will ONLY be used IF it isn’t possible for buses to safely use Fennell Avenue West.
