Transportation and Health Impact Modelling for Healthy Cities

Lay Summary 

This project will help researchers and policy makers better understand the potential health impacts of large transportation interventions happening in Canada. There are a number of large scale transportation interventions happening right now, including the Jacques Cartier Bridge in Montreal and the Calgary light rail system. Better understanding the potential health impacts of these transportation interventions is important consider that transportation interventions have significant costs to construct and maintain, and overall, may be good or bad for our health.
