Re: Mid-peninsula highway
After much consideration, we do not agree with the new mid-peninsula
highway that is proposed to be constructed between Highway 5 and
No. 1 Sideroad.
Because its current proposed route will scale the escarpment, much
of the protected land in this area will be destroyed.
These areas are environmentally sensitive, and the highway will
be very detrimental to the environment.
Further more, people move to the country to be further away from
highways, and the noise and the congestion of the city.
The rural lifestyle of southern Ontario should not be threatened
by uncontrolled and poorly planned urban sprawl.
A suggestion to reduce the amount of highway congestion is to simply
expand the capacity of the current major highways, and to provide
better access through arterial roads to accommodate current and
future traffic demands.
