London-Middlesex is in the Red/Control category of the Provincial Keeping Ontario Safe and Open framework. A number of City facilities have reopened to the public for in-person programs and services.
Windermere Road from Western Road to Doon Drive is a major street that has a high amount of traffic, especially during peak hours, which leads to congestion. The lack of accessible features and active transportation infrastructure creates potentially uncomfortable conditions for all road users. Community members have also expressed concerns for the pedestrian crossings in this area.
The EA will identify the needs and balance the requirements of the full range of potential users within the community including users of all ages and abilities, pedestrians, cyclists, transit vehicles and motorists. Improvements to both the Richmond Street and Western Street intersections will also be considered as part of this environmental assessment.

This input will be critical to shaping the final recommendations of the Environmental Study Report.
