Multi-use trails

Crosstown Trail

Construction of the Crosstown Trail from Bristol Circle to Winston Churchill Boulevard, was completed in August 2022. The project received funding from the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling (OMCC) Program.

Detailed design has started for the Crosstown Trail from Fourth Line to Bronte Road, and work is currently underway.

Upper Middle Road

Rehabilitation of the multi-use trail between Sixth Line and Golden Briar Trail is now complete. The work is under warranty until the fall of 2023.

Upper Middle Road is a major arterial roadway and a primary active transportation route. The project will improve mobility options and increase the level of safety for walking and cycling for the entire community.

The project received Government of Canada support through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) as part of the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF).

North Service Road

Plans are underway to build an asphalt multi-use path on North Service Road, from Fourth Line to Dorval Drive. The project will see the installation of a three meters wide path for active transportation use.
