Notice of Public Information Centre for Two Cycling Infrastructure Projects:
Dundas Cycle Track and Dundas–Thames Valley Parkway (TVP) Connection
On Thursday, February 27, 2020, Londoners are invited to attend a Public Information Centre for two Dundas Street infrastructure projects designed to improve east-west cycling connections and better links to transit:
- Dundas Cycle Track
This project will connect Downtown with Old East Village by creating a permanent, separated east-west cycling route on Dundas Street between Wellington Street and Adelaide Street, and on William Street between Dundas Street and Queens Avenue. The project is part of the broader East-West Bikeway, designed to strengthen east-west cycling connections.
- Dundas-TVP Connection
Today there is a break in cycling infrastructure between Dundas Street and the TVP. This project will slightly shift the alignment of Dundas Street to better align the intersection and street with Dundas Place and create a continuous connection in the cycling network heading onto Dundas Street from the TVP.
Both projects are in the early stages of detailed design. The purpose of the drop-in Public Information Centre is to collect Londoners’ feedback to assess design options for each project. City staff and engineering consultants will be available to share information, collect input, and answer questions on both projects.
All Public Information Centre materials will be posted on the City of London’s Get Involved website: getinvolved.london.ca February 28, and Londoners can submit comments or questions any time by emailing the project teams at the contacts listed below.
When: Thursday, February 27, 2020, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Where: Catholic Central High School (CCH), 450 Dundas St., Cafeteria
Transit routes: 2, 20

Notice of the Third Series of Open Houses
City of London Residual Waste Disposal Strategy
Environmental Assessment of the Proposed W12A Landfill Expansion
The City of London (the City) has initiated a study under the Environmental Assessment (EA) Act for a proposed expansion of the City’s existing landfill (W12A), which is expected to reach capacity in 2024. The service area for the landfill expansion is proposed to be enlarged to a regional area, which would include: the City of London, County of Huron, County of Perth, County of Elgin, County of Lambton, and County of Middlesex.
The City wants community feedback on the proposed expansion of the W12A Landfill and is hosting this third series of open houses as follows:
February 26, 2020
Royal Canadian Legion (Basement)
7097 Kilbourne Road, London
2 – 4 p.m. and 5 – 8 p.m.
February 27, 2020
Earl Nichols Arena (Hall)
799 Homeview Road, London
2 – 4 p.m. and 5 – 8 p.m.
It is proposed that the landfill expansion (including buffer area) will occur within the area on and adjacent to the existing landfill property.
At these open houses the public will learn about the EA process, the landfill expansion concepts (known as ‘Alternative Methods’), the evaluation of ‘Alternative Methods’, the preliminary selection of the ‘Preferred Alternative’, and how to stay involved in the EA process. Additionally information on the development of the City’s Resource Recovery Strategy will be available to the public.
A main focus of the open houses will be to inform the public and seek input on the Preferred Alternative for landfill expansion and to inform on the EA Process. Attendees will have the opportunity to have one-on-one discussions with City staff and the project consultant.
If you wish to be added to the project contact list, or have questions, please contact City staff/project consultant as noted below or visit the City’s website at getinvolved.london.ca/WhyWasteDisposal.
