Corridor project not to be a bypass

Opinion Oct 09, 2013 Flamborough Review

Re: MOE approves bypass plan – with conditions, Review, October 3

Your otherwise excellent coverage of this story, and both your and Councillor Partridge’s comments are wrong in one regard. I attended most – if not all – meetings related to Waterdown South and North as a co-founder of the Waterdown South Residents Association.

When we suggested that the main road through the southern development align with the proposed new road to the north of Dundas St. we were categorically told by both city and staff and consultants that the northern segment was not meant to be a bypass.

I believe that had it been designed as a true bypass, the considerations around the project might have been quite different.
