Your source for what's happening in the ward
It’s been a difficult six months of construction in Ward 9 and I would like to thank residents for their patience while dealing with detours and delays. The Byron Baseline Road Project will soon be coming to an end but many other private projects along our major roads will continue. Remember to give yourself a little bit more time to get to your destination and I thank you for slowing down.
When at events in Ward 9 the conversation as to what will happen to the Dam usually comes up. Council was given an update on the One River Master Plan EA and a public engagement process is underway. Three alternatives are being looked at for the Dam: DO NOTHING – Dam is left as is. FREE-FLOWING RIVER – Dam is decommissioned, no longer providing water retention but may be repurposed. REINSTATE THE DAM – Restore to a water retention function. These choices will be evaluated and presented to Council with a preferred alternative for Springbank Dam later this fall.
London’s Rapid Transit EA is still ongoing, currently looking at other cities for inspiration on bus rapid transit planning. BRT depends on dedicated lanes to keep buses running every few minutes without getting caught in traffic and staff are looking at other cities use of lane-space and location. This could include a curb-side bus lane similar to bike lanes or a centre lane where buses would travel between opposing lanes of traffic and could be tailored to different parts of the city. LTC routes will feed into the BRT to improve transit for all Londoners.
We are very fortunate to live in a country that allows for freedom of speech, diversity and respect for one another, feeling safe in our homes and travelling at night without fear. November is a time to celebrate and remember the men and women that made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. I hope to see you at the Byron-Springbank Legion Remembrance Day Parade on Saturday, Nov. 4th starting at 1 pm and at the Lambeth Legion Community Remembrance Day Service on Sunday, November 5th at the Lambeth Cenotaph at noon.
I will continue to do my best and keep residents updated. In the meantime, I want to make sure that you are aware of the opportunity to make your voice heard.
