Intersections Meet Warrants for Traffic Signals
The Transportation and Works department has completed two studies at two separate intersections in Ward 10 to determine the whether traffic signals are warranted. I am pleased to report that both intersections—at Tenth Line and Bentley Drive/Brittany Glen plaza as well as Ninth Line at Doug Leavens Boulevard—met the warrants and will be included in the list of signals being recommended to Council later in June for installation in 2013.

Bus Rapid Transit Update
The Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will be a high-efficiency transit corridor running east-west across Mississauga. The BRT will support all-station stop and extensive express bus service for thousands of riders per day, making it faster and easier for you to travel to, from and through Mississauga and the GTA.
The BRT West, from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Erin Mills Parkway, will be the responsibility of GO Transit. BRT Stations with Park and Ride lots will be built at Winston Churchill Boulevard and Erin Mills Parkway.
The City of Mississauga is responsible for the construction of the BRT East from the City Centre to Renforth Station (Commerce Blvd.). BRT stations with Park and Ride lots will be built at Cawthra Road and Dixie Road. Additional BRT stations will be constructed at Tomken Road, Tahoe Boulevard, Etobicoke Creek, Spectrum Way and Orbiter Drive.
The construction of the Mississauga Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project is well underway with the planned opening of the first section from the City Centre to Dixie Station in the fall of 2013. Once operational, MiExpress and MiLocal buses will utilize the exclusive busway and four new stations to bypass the adjacent road network to offer transit riders a shorter travel time to their destinations.
Resurfacing of Tenth Line West completed
The resurfacing of Tenth Line West between Derry Rd. and Britannia Rd. is now fully complete. The specific work included:
- a sidewalk was constructed on the east side of Tenth Line West from Britannia Road to Aquitaine Avenue
- new curb was constructed on the east side of Tenth Line West
- approximately 90mm of existing pavement was shaved and repaved
- the existing pavement will be widened approximately 3.0m to incorporate a 1.5m bike lane in each direction
- very limited work was done on the west side of the road since it is already constructed to urban standard
- the parking lay-bys were not altered
- broken curb and any sidewalk bays were replaced

Gathering Feedback on Lights at Erin Centre and Churchill Meadows Blvds
I am soliciting feedback from residents living in the vicinity of Erin Centre Blvd. and Churchill Meadows Blvd. about a safety concern in this neighbourhood. Since the fatal collision in January that took the lives of two young men along Erin Centre Boulevard, I have been working closely with the City’s Transportation and Works department to have a traffic light installed at Erin Centre Blvd. and Churchill Meadows Blvd. Some of my colleagues on Council are concerned about the money it will cost to put these lights in, even though funding is already allocated in the 2012 budget. For me, my main priority is the safety of the residents who live in our community.
In the past four years, police reports indicate that there have been 86 collisions on Erin Centre Blvd. and Churchill Meadows Blvd. in the vicinity of this intersection plus hundreds of tickets issued for speeding. Police enforcement does help correct bad driving behaviour and is one tool we can and will use to improve the safety in the area. However, we cannot have police there all the time (as that would cost taxpayers much more money) and so I am advocating for a traffic light which is proven to improve driver behaviour and make intersections safer, especially for pedestrians.
If you live in this neighbourhood, I would like to hear back from you as to whether or not you would support a traffic signal at this intersection. Please take a moment now to send me a quick e-mail: Sue.McFadden@mississauga.ca. Be sure to include your name and full residential address.
Traffic Signals at Tenth Line and Bloomfield Drive
I am pleased that the long-awaited traffic signal at Tenth Line and Bloomfield Drive has been installed, improving the safety of the area for pedestrians and motorists who are making their way in and out of our community. As Tenth Line is the border with neighbouring Ward 9, a number of offices and departments were involved in moving this project forward; I’m grateful to our staff who ensured that the installation was done well. I’ve already been hearing positive comments from the community since the lights went in.
Ninth Line Widening
The City is making plans for Ninth Line to be widened to four lanes. Work will begin in the north section between Derry Rd. and Hwy. 401 in 2013 in conjunction with the extension of Argentia Road from Tenth Line to Ninth Line (in Ward 9). Expected completion time of this section of Ninth Line widening is 2014.
Churchill Woods Construction Timeline
Construction has begun on the new development east of Tenth Line between Tacc Drive and Thomas Street called Churchill Woods. The project will include the addition of 475 new dwellings, a mix of detached, semi-detached and townhomes clustered in a beautiful new neighbourhood south of the existing woodlot. Homes will be built by Greenpark and Starlane. McCracken Park will be doubled in size.
The developer has provided the following timeline for the construction project (subject to change):

Community Meeting on Lisgar Flooding
About 200 residents were updated at a community meeting on December 14 about the city’s ongoing investigation and activities related to the flooding issues in the Lisgar community.
The focus of the meeting was on outlining the steps that city and regional staff have undertaken toward finding the root cause or causes of the flooding.
The issue of possible compensation will be addressed following the submission of an engineering study by an external consultant expected in early 2013.
In the meantime, the city will respond immediately as necessary to findings in the study prior to its completion. In addition, during High Water Warnings, city crews will be dispatched to strategic locations in the Lisgar area to monitor water levels and take appropriate action to mitigate further problems.
