Wharncliffe Road South Improvements
The City of London is planning improvements for Wharncliffe Road South from north of the Thames River to Springbank Drive. One northbound travel lane will be added on Wharncliffe Road South between Horton Street and Becher Street.
The City also will rehabilitate the Wharncliffe Road Bridge across the Thames River, including enhancements to pathway connections for active transportation with wider sidewalks. Although the corridor is not currently considered a bike route in the Cycling Master Plan, the bridge design has consideration for future cycling lanes.
The current road bottleneck at the CN Rail Bridge creates safety and operational concerns for all road users, and results in traffic in the surrounding neighbourhoods.
Full construction is expected to take two years
