Windermere Road Improvements Environmental Assessment

Background

Windermere Road between Western Road and Doon Drive is a street that has a high amount of vehicle traffic which causes traffic congestion, especially during peak hours.

The lack of accessible features and active transportation infrastructure creates potentially undesirable conditions for road users. Community members have also expressed concerns about the pedestrian crossings in this area.

The City of London has begun an Environmental Assessment of the area to identify the needs of road users of all ages and abilities, including pedestrians, cyclists, public transit, and motorists

In addition, this study will assess the opportunity for an active transportation connection from Windermere Road to the Thames Valley Parkway.

The study area includes Windermere Road between Western Road and Doon Drive, as well as Richmond Street from Windermere Road to just south of the Thames River.

This study will look at the following:

  • active transportation, intersection and transit improvements on Windermere Road between Western Road and Doon Drive
  • accessibility improvements along the corridor and intersections

This list is not exhaustive.

Current status

The City is preparing to host a virtual Public Information Center (PIC) on June 10 from 5 p.m. till 7 p.m. for residents and businesses to learn more about this project. This project information would typically be presented at an in-person public meeting, but adjustments are being made to ensure public safety and to follow COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings.
