MADD Canada Documentary Being Filmed in Milton

Just as a reminder to my previous post, the area around Louis St Laurent and Hwy 25 will be closed to traffic as MADD Canada is filming its 3rd documentary in Milton.

The filming will include a simulated car accident so if you do see activity there, thats the reason.  Halton Police and Milton Fire Department will be on hand during the filming and area residents have been informed.

Here’s the email received today with further details.

Further to my e-mail from a few weeks ago, please be advised that filming permits have been issued for the above filming project which is a documentary.

Filming will be taking place on October 25,26,27, 2012 (rain date October 28, 2012)from 6:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.

Louis St Laurent Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Bronte Street South and Diefenbaker Street during the filming as a car crash will be taking place. Advanced Road Closures have been in place for the past week and detour signage will be installed during the filming. Halton Regional Police will be on site during the entire filming project.

Access to local residents will be maintained via Diefenbaker Street and Leiterman Drive.

Milton Fire Department will be on site while the crash is occurring. After the crash the car will be removed off of the street and placed on the shoulder until the next night. The filming company will be signing the car so passerby’s know it is related to filming and not an actual crash.

Area residents have been notified and signed a petition in support of the filming.

It should be noted that this is the 3rd time that MADD has filmed a documentary in Milton.

Attention Residents in Louis St Laurent / Hwy 25 Area

Just received an email from Town of Milton staff informing us that MADD Canada will be filming a documentary called “After Party” of a car crash. Details are listed here.

This will be in the area of Diefenbaker Street / Louis St Laurent just west of 25 in Ward 7.  Please pass this information along to people you know in this area.  Traffic shouldn’t be disrupted while filming too much but people will get worried if they don’t know whats going on.

To: Milton Council

Please be advised that I am working with MJM Productions for the filming of a MADD Canada Documentary entitled “After Party”

They are looking at filming on Louis St Laurent Avenue between Diefenbaker Street and Bronte Street South/First Line. They will be doing overnight filming of a car crash and the filming is proposed for October 25,26 and 27th starting at 6:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.

Halton Regional Police and Milton Fire are aware of this filming and will be on site during the car crash.

Advanced Road closure signs will be installed at some time next week. Area residents are now being papered and the filming company will be getting signatures from any resident that faces Louis St Laurent Avenue. Detour signage will also be installed when the closure is taking place.

Local access will be maintained to the subdivision on the north side of Louis St Laurent Avenue.

At this time filming permits have not been issued and I will advise you of when this has been completed.
