Adelaide Street North Environmental Assessment


Adelaide Street North is a major road that will be operating over capacity in 2030, mainly due to development in north London. The 2030 Transportation Master Plan recommended the City widen this road from two to four lanes.

The Adelaide Street North Environmental Assessment was initiated to:

  • identify and evaluate a range of alternative solutions to accommodate growing traffic volumes along this corridor, including intersection improvements (particularly at Sunningdale Road), active transportation and transit improvements; and,
  • review and develop a design that will be consistent with the visions and policies of the 2030 Transportation Master Plan.

Current status

The project team has completed the Environmental Assessment Study for the widening of Adelaide Street North. An Environmental Study Report (ESR) has been prepared to document the Class EA planning process used in developing the recommended plan, including the alternatives considered, the preferred design, impacts and mitigation measures, and consultation activities. The ESR was available for 30-day public review period from August 11, 2023, to September 11, 2023. The study is now complete. 

Study area

The study area includes Adelaide Street North from Fanshawe Park Road East to approximately 300m north of Sunningdale Road East, and includes Sunningdale Road East from Blackwater Road to the Stoney Creek Community Centre entrance.

Project Timeline

May 2018: Start of the Environmental Assessment

The City sent out a notice of commencement to residents, business owners and interested stakeholders to notify them of the Environmental Assessment's start.

November 2018: First Public Information Centre

A Public Information Centre was scheduled for November 2018 at the Stoney Creek branch of the London Public Library - interested parties were encouraged to attend. The public provided comments specific to the potential Adelaide Street North road widening to the project team which was critical to the development of this Environmental Assessment.

June 2019: Second Public Information Centre

A Public Information Centre was scheduled for June 2019 at A. B. Lucas Secondary School. The team provided all interested parties with an update on the project and listened to feedback that will be critical to shaping the recommendations provided by the Environmental Study Report.

Environmental Study Report

The project team is currently preparing an Environmental Study Report. This report will be available for a 30-day public review period, and is expected to be complete by the end of July 2023.
