Britannia Road Project
Update of the road works being carried out on Britannia Rd from Winston Churchill Blvd to Erin Mills Pkwy
June 21, 2018 – The Region is working on completing the boulevard works by the end of the month. This includes paving of the multi-use trail, splash pads, centre median, grading of swale and placing sod.
The final top asphalt paving is scheduled to start on Wednesday, July 4th with completion anticipated by Saturday, July 7th, weather permitting.
This work will be done during weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. This will allow the contractor a 13-hour working window which will significantly increase their production and reduce the impact to commuters and residents on Britannia Road.
During paving operations, the intersections of Britannia Road and Paddle Road/Greensboro, Britannia Road and Glen Erin Boulevard and Britannia Road and Erin Mills Parkway will be blocked temporarily for at least 4 hours and/or until the asphalt cools down.

Paving on Britannia Rd (from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Erin Mills Parkway)
Oct 23, 2017 – Thank you for your patience as the work progresses on Britannia Road. This has been a long project and contractors had some difficulty along the way delaying the completion. We are coming to the conclusion of the work and to date the watermain replacement, the environmental storm sewer system, curbs, sidewalks and catch basins are completed. Base asphalt has been laid on the westbound lanes as has the intersection of Winston Churchill and Britannia. The eastbound lanes (south side) base asphalt is expected to be completed by the first week of November, weather permitting. The final top asphalt is expected to be done by the third week in November, 2017 if the weather permits. If it cannot be done due to weather delays then final paving will be done in the spring. The multi-use trail on the north side of Britannia Road is ongoing and is expected to be completed by mid-November.

Watermain Replacement & Improvement Mississauga Rd/Erin Mills Pkwy
Sept 5, 2017 – Watermain installation is taking place along Mississauga Road/Erin Mills Parkway from Argentia Road to Turner Valley Road and will occur overnight between the hours of 8:00 pm to 6:00 am. This work will start on Monday, September 18, 2017 and will be completed on Saturday, November 25, 2017. Since work depends on the weather, these dates may change. Due to the high traffic counts along this road, working during the overnight hours is the best way to manage the high volume of traffic while completing the work in an efficient manner. Interruption to water in the affected area may occur and affected residents will be notified 48 hours in advance. Please call 905-791-7800 x 5943 for any questions or concerns.

I have asked staff to maintain the road side ditches/shallow swale along Britannia Road if possible to incorporate more environmentally friendly drainage systems.

Twinning of the West Trunk Sewer (Erin Mills / Britannia) Update
I know that motorists are getting frustrated at the reduced lanes and delays at the intersection of Erin Mills and Britannia. Region staff advise me that the work is now moving to south of the intersection in the median. The work is part of the sewer installation along Erin Mills. The project is essentially a tunnelling project with minimum interference with traffic. Because of the unknown ground conditions, we had to drill numerous wells around Erin Mills/Britannia, which resulted in lane closures on numerous occasions. We have successfully completed the mining work related to the tunnel around Erin Mills/Britannia. The restoration work will involve re-construction of the centre median, decommissioning of the dewatering wells and road restoration on Erin Mills Parkway between Britannia and Windwood Drive.
