Capital Projects & Community Meetings

Road work on Britannia Road West

The Region of Peel will be replacing watermains and resurfacing Britannia Road West from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Erin Mills Parkway in Ward 9 (just east of Ward 10). Construction begins March 20, 2017 and is expected to be completed in mid-November, weather permitting. Lanes will be closed periodically, affecting traffic in both directions, especially during the morning and evening rush hour. For the full public notice, please click here.

Median being added to Tenth Line

A short-term construction project is begining this week on Tenth Line at the railroad crossing near the Lisgar GO station. Crews will be adding a median in the centre of the roadway to make it easier for pedestrians who are crossing Tenth Line to get to and from the GO station. It will serve as a 'landing pad' so pedestrians only have to wait for a gap in traffic one lane at a time. The project is expected to last about three weeks. Please take care in the area during construction and, as always, stay safe... whether you are a driver or walker.

New playground equipment for Cordingley, Johnny Bower Parks

The playgrounds at Cordingley Park (Saratoga Way) and Johnny Bower Park (Parkgate Drive) will be under construction for a few days each in late October and early November. The old equipment will be removed and replaced with new slides, swings and other amenities. The sand surface is also being replace by wood fibre that meets accessibility requirements and standards. Johnny Bower Park was due for replacement in 2016 and Cordingley a few years later. These were part of the capital budget, however, with the help of a Canada 150 grant from the previous federal government and honoured by the current one, about half of the cost is being covered by the Government of Canada, enabling us to move the Cordingley replacement forward into 2016.

Meadowvale Community Centre Construction Update

Construction on the new Meadowvale Community Centre is progressing on schedule. It began in July 2014 and is expected to be completed in 2016. The redevelopment of Meadowvale CC will expand and improve recreation programming, public accessibility and replace building systems that are at the end
of their 30 year life cycle. Also, it is an opportunity to colocate the Meadowvale Library to this site.

Expanded features will enhance the comfort, convenience and safety for facility users as well as increase operational and program efficiencies for the City. Redevelopment will modernize Meadowvale Community Centre making it fully accessible and meeting the recreation needs of the community today and in the future. By incorporating Meadowvale Library into the space, residents will have convenient access to both recreational and library services in a more efficient and costeffective space.

Once completed, residents will enjoy the benefits of:
• Improved security and control access points
• An enlarged and integrated fitness space
• New meeting rooms and program space
• A new gymnasium
• A new therapeutic pool

Located at 6655 Glen Erin Drive in Ward 9, the centre serves the north-west portion of what the City's Community Services Division refers to as "Area 1," stretching from the city's northern and western boundary limits to Eglinton Avenue West in the south and east to the Credit River. Meadowvale CC's 2.5-km radius, a service level benchmark for major community centres, covers much of the Lisgar District and functions as the recreation facility serving the northern part of Ward 10.

New Washroom Amenity at Lisgar Park

This spring we are looking forward to the successful construction of the park washroom at Lisgar Fields Community Park. Construction is anticipated to start late May and should be complete by the end of October, 2015. Further refinement of the park washroom has occurred since the concept plans were presented at the Public Open House in June, 2014. Below is a list of design changes:

  1. Review of the roof runoff flow calculations and the clay soil conditions has determined that four times the area of permeable pavement is required to achieve some infiltration.  The revised solution has concrete pavement at the front of the building and grass surrounding the building.  This solution is significantly more cost efficient, and the grass surface permits water to soak into the ground.
  2. Five silver maple trees need to be removed to allow for water and sanitary servicing. Some of the trees have suffered ice damage, and others have weak structural form.  Five quality trees will be replanted in their place.  Forestry staff will remove the trees before the construction of the park washroom. Your office will be notified one week before the trees are taken down.
  3. The existing bike racks shall be relocated to the concrete pavement proposed in front of the building.
  4. A P-gate is proposed for the pathway leading from the parking lot to the park washroom. The gate will restrict unauthorized vehicles from entering the park, but allow pedestrians, cyclists, strollers, etc. to enter.
  5. A portion of decorative fence along the front of Lisgar Park will be removed to allow for construction access.  Replacement of the fence will take place once the park washroom is complete.

During construction, City staff will ensure the contractor is taking all measures to provide a safe environment while the park washroom is being built; especially concerning the adjacent uses of the playground and spray pad.

TransCanada Pipeline Project

Residents living in the northwest corner of Ward 10 recently received a notice from TransCanada regarding an upgrade to the natural gas measurement and control facilities at the Parkway Belt Meter Station.

This station, located on the east side of Hwy 407, south of Derry Road, is one of the contracted delivery points for gas that will be received in the Niagara area. Currently, the station measures gas delivered from a common pipeline system to two interconnected pipelines. The proposed modifications will separate the system to allow for independent operation of TransCanada's measurement facilities. This will involve the installation of a new buried station pipe, as well as associated valves and ancillary piping. The new pipe will consist of approximately 20 meters of 24-inch diameter pipe. Additionally, approximately 14 meters of existing 24-inch diameter buried pipe will be replaced with 30-inch diameter pipe.

The upgrades to the facility will take place entirely on TransCanada's existing station property. The construction period at this site will occur over a five week period. During construction, there will be an increase in traffic flow in and around the site. Construction activities typically generate a certain amount of noise. TransCanada will meet applicable noise limits throughout construction and the ongoing operations of the Project. TransCanada will provide notice to the community prior to the commencement of construction.

I have received confirmation from city staff and an external consultant that this construction project will have no impact whatsoever on the watershed in the Lisgar District.


Derry Road Re-Paving and Lane Reductions

Paving of the top asphalt Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Nov. 5-7, during daytime (weather permitting) for the section of Derry Road from Hwy 407 to Danton Promenade. Our contractor is planning to start switching traffic from one direction to the other at around 7:30 AM. The paving operations will run between 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM, this will allow our contractor a 10-hr working window which will significantly increase their production. With this proposal, there is no doubt that there will be a significant traffic impact to the commuters on Derry Road, but due to fast approaching cold weather and drop in temperature during night time, we have no choice but to pave during daytime to enable completion of this section of the works before winter.  (For the section of Derry Road from Argentia Road to Financial Drive, we will put down base asphalt shortly after and depending on the weather we may reschedule the top asphalt and restoration works next spring.)


Infrastructure Projects in Trelawny

I am providing a quick update on the capital infrastructure projects taking place in the Trelawny area. Recently I organized a meeting with staff from the Region of Peel and the City of Mississauga to work out the timing of the installation of the flushing stations in the Trelawny cul de sacs and the resurfacing of Trelawny Circle, Mockingbird Lanes and Bishop Strachan Court.  Significant delays in the flushing stations project have required some further changes in the resurfacing project.

I had two main objectives to minimize any negative impacts to homeowners in the area.

  1. To ensure that the repaving of any cul de sacs occurs after the installation of the flushing stations.
  2. To ensure that the resurfacing of Trelawny Circle (main roadway) is completed during the summer, before the start of the new school year.

RESURFACING (City)

I have received a construction schedule for the resurfacing project from the City. The plan is to repave Trelawny Circle first so that the areas in front of the schools are done by September 1. Following that, Bishop Strachan Court and Mockingbird Lanes will be repaved.  Please note that curb and sewer work will likely begin in the summer on all three streets but the priority for repaving will be Trelawny Circle.

Not all of the cul de sacs are being resurfaced as part of this project, only those marked in red on the attached map. The yellow and green ones will be done when necessary in future years. It is our understanding that some (perhaps most) of the red cul de sacs will be resurfaced in 2015 rather than this year because of the delays with the flushing station installation project. The schedule for repaving these red cul de sacs is not available at this time.

FLUSHING STATIONS (Region)

All 132 cul de sacs (or nail heads) will be getting a flushing station installed. The contractor for the Region of Peel will be working around the City’s resurfacing schedule to install the flushing stations. All of this work is done in the cul de sac and all of the initial resurfacing work is done on the main roadway, so co-ordinating these two projects simultaneously is possible.  The Region's contractor is starting on Tenth Line West with installation of the flushing stations and this entire project is expected to be completed in early October. 

Directly affected homeowners should have received notices from Peel and Mississauga related to each of these projects. Contact names for each project are included on those notices if you have any questions about timing or scope of work. I am sending this note to a wider group than just these homeowners to advise of the construction because many residents use Trelawny Circle to get in, out and around in Lisgar.

Please have patience during the construction phase. This temporary inconvenience will be followed by years of good quality and aesthetically-pleasing infrastructure. If you have questions or comments, feel free to contact my office.

Traffic Signals, Stop Signs and Crosswalks

In an effort to calm traffic and make Ward 10 safer, I am pleased to announce the following:


Bus Rapid Transit Update

The Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will be a high-efficiency transit corridor running east-west across Mississauga. The BRT will support all-station stop and extensive express bus service for thousands of riders per day, making it faster and easier for you to travel to, from and through Mississauga and the GTA.

The BRT West, from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Erin Mills Parkway, will be the responsibility of GO Transit. BRT Stations with Park and Ride lots will be built at Winston Churchill Boulevard and Erin Mills Parkway.

The City of Mississauga is responsible for the construction of the BRT East from the City Centre to Renforth Station (Commerce Blvd.). BRT stations with Park and Ride lots will be built at Cawthra Road and Dixie Road. Additional BRT stations will be constructed at Tomken Road, Tahoe Boulevard, Etobicoke Creek, Spectrum Way and Orbiter Drive.

The construction of the Mississauga Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project is well underway with the planned opening of the first section from the City Centre to Dixie Station in the fall of 2013. Once operational, MiExpress and MiLocal buses will utilize the exclusive busway and four new stations to bypass the adjacent road network to offer transit riders a shorter travel time to their destinations.

Gathering Feedback on Lights at Erin Centre and Churchill Meadows Blvds

I am soliciting feedback from residents living in the vicinity of Erin Centre Blvd. and Churchill Meadows Blvd. about a safety concern in this neighbourhood. Since the fatal collision in January that took the lives of two young men along Erin Centre Boulevard, I have been working closely with the City’s Transportation and Works department to have a traffic light installed at Erin Centre Blvd. and Churchill Meadows Blvd. Some of my colleagues on Council are concerned about the money it will cost to put these lights in, even though funding is already allocated in the 2012 budget. For me, my main priority is the safety of the residents who live in our community.

In the past four years, police reports indicate that there have been 86 collisions on Erin Centre Blvd. and Churchill Meadows Blvd. in the vicinity of this intersection plus hundreds of tickets issued for speeding. Police enforcement does help correct bad driving behaviour and is one tool we can and will use to improve the safety in the area. However, we cannot have police there all the time (as that would cost taxpayers much more money) and so I am advocating for a traffic light which is proven to improve driver behaviour and make intersections safer, especially for pedestrians.

If you live in this neighbourhood, I would like to hear back from you as to whether or not you would support a traffic signal at this intersection. Please take a moment now to send me a quick e-mail: Sue.McFadden@mississauga.ca. Be sure to include your name and full residential address.


Traffic Signals at Tenth Line and Bloomfield Drive

I am pleased that the long-awaited traffic signal at Tenth Line and Bloomfield Drive has been installed, improving the safety of the area for pedestrians and motorists who are making their way in and out of our community. As Tenth Line is the border with neighbouring Ward 9, a number of offices and departments were involved in moving this project forward; I’m grateful to our staff who ensured that the installation was done well. I’ve already been hearing positive comments from the community since the lights went in.


Road Resurfacing - southeast corner of Lisgar community

As your City and Regional Councillor I am committed to providing you with excellent service and upgrades to the Community we call home.

Construction activity on the streets noted below will begin sometime in the summer of this year.  A typical refurbishing includes, but is not limited to, the required removal and replacing of asphalt, the repair and replacement of concrete curb, repair of warranted sidewalk bays, and a repair of impacted driveway aprons.  The entire existing paved portion of roadway within the subject limits will be removed and repaved as part of this work.

Our Transportation and Works Department will be delivering letters to the residents impacted by this work shortly before the project begins.  The letter will explain the work further and when the construction will actually start along with the City of Mississauga contact names and phone numbers should you have questions before, during or after the work is complete.

Community Meeting on Lisgar Flooding

About 200 residents were updated at a community meeting on December 14 about the city’s ongoing investigation and activities related to the flooding issues in the Lisgar community.

The focus of the meeting was on outlining the steps that city and regional staff have undertaken toward finding the root cause or causes of the flooding.

The issue of possible compensation will be addressed following the submission of an engineering study by an external consultant expected in early 2013.

In the meantime, the city will respond immediately as necessary to findings in the study prior to its completion. In addition, during High Water Warnings, city crews will be dispatched to strategic locations in the Lisgar area to monitor water levels and take appropriate action to mitigate further problems.
