Update JULY 2014
Here is the most up to date information from Halton Region regarding the Britannia Road widening project.
Further to our recent discussion, the following is an update on the work underway to implement the water, wastewater and road improvements on Britannia Road from Tremaine Road to Regional Road 25.
The EA for the Britannia Road improvements through the entire corridor from Tremaine to the 407 is being finalized for filing in late September.
The detailed design of the water and wastewater mains between Tremaine and Regional Road 25 is proceeding for tendering this Fall, with construction scheduled for completion in the Fall of 2015.
The detailed design of the widening of the road and the CN Grade Separation east of Tremaine Road is also proceeding and construction of the road works will commence immediately following completion of the water and wastewater works.
A detailed communication plan will be implemented as we get closer to the start of construction.
The environmental assessment for expansion of Britannia Rd is complete. A report to be presented at the Planning & Public Works meeting on March 19th will outline the details of the EA.
This now opens the door to get shovels in the ground to expand Britannia Road from Tremaine Road to HWY 407.
This project was accelerated back in 2008 by Halton Region as it was originally slated to START in 2021 if you can believe it. The EA process has been long due to dealing with property acquisitions AND funding.
It wont be done right away but at least we can look forward to this long awaited and much needed project to begin sometime in 2015 if everything goes to plan.
