Future construction projects


Trans Canada Trail extension

A joint project between the City of Waterloo, Region of Waterloo and the Township of Woolwich resulted in a study to realign a portion of the Trans Canada Trail (now the 'Great Trail’) to form a more direct route between Waterloo and Woolwich.

A review of route options resulted in the preferred route following along Parkside Drive in Waterloo to the Farmers Market area via the existing rail corridor.

Consultation

Information on this work was presented to the public in 2017 with presentation boards. Some themes heard from the public included:

  • safety, such as lighting and crossing major roads
  • connections to adjacent businesses
  • what would happen to the current Trans Canada Trail alignment
Next steps

The study work is nearing completion which will position the municipal partners to access funding opportunities as they arise. Further details will be added to this site as they arise.
