Britannia Road Corridor Improvements

Breadcrumbs
 

Britannia Road is a critical east-west corridor in Halton Region that motorists rely on to get to work, school, retail and home every day. To accommodate growth, provide safe alternative transit options and improve traffic flow, Halton Region is planning to make improvements to Britannia Road.

With construction starting in summer 2019, Britannia Road (from Tremaine Road to Highway 407) will be widened from 2 to 6 lanes and upgraded to include bike lanes, traffic signals and streetlights. The Britannia Road improvements will be completed in three phases:

  • Phase 1 - Tremaine Road to Regional Road 25 (Project #2667): Starting summer 2019
  • Phase 2 - James Snow Parkway to Highway 407 (Project #2668/2669): Starting 2020*
  • Phase 3 - Regional Road 25 to James Snow Parkway (Project #2670): Starting 2020*

* Subject to construction funding

Project Updates

Traffic Updates:
Temporary road closure on Britannia Road between Tremaine Road and Bronte Street South/First Line starting Monday, October 28, 2019 at 9 a.m. until Monday, November 11, 2019 at 7 p.m. Due to the removal and relocation of the railway crossing, emergency vehicle access and local access will not be maintained. Please follow detour signage and drive carefully through the detour route.

Detours:
During the temporary road closure, motorists can detour on Tremaine Road or Regional Road 25 to Derry Road.

Resident Impact:

To help you plan ahead for construction activity, please read the project related information below. Wherever possible, mitigation plans will be put in place to minimize disruptions.

  • Dust and mud: There may be increased levels of dust and mud near the work site. The contractor is required to manage these impacts.
  • Noise: You may experience noise as a result of construction. We will schedule work in accordance with local noise by-laws.
  • Tree pruning & removals: Due to the road widening, certain trees will either be pruned or removed. This work may happen shortly to allow for the utility relocations to occur. New trees will be planted once construction has completed.
  • Truck traffic: You will notice increases in truck traffic around the ongoing work. Please be aware and use extra caution while driving.
