The City of London is undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study for the Adelaide Street North widening From Fansahwe Park Road East to Sunningdale Road East according to the recommendations of the City’s Smart Moves Transportation Master Plan (TMP). This project is being carried out under the planning and design process for a Schedule C project as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association’s Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015).
Adelaide Street North is a north/south Civic Boulevard that was determined to be operating over capacity by 2030 in the City of London’s Smart Moves TMP due to increasing development north of the study area as well as travel needs throughout the City as a whole. The TMP recommends that this section of Adelaide Street North be widened from two lanes to four lanes by 2020.
The Adelaide Street EA will:
- Assess / confirm the need and justification for widening of Adelaide Street North
- 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
- Review and develop a design that will be consistent with the visions and policies of the 2030 Transportation Master Plan
