Two Additional Lanes Will Increase Traffic Flow, Improve Commutes
Mississauga, ON – Nov 28, 2017
Ontario has opened two new lanes on Highway 410, from Highway 401 to Queen Street in Brampton, to improve traffic flow and get commuters and families moving.
Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation, Amrit Mangat, MPP for Mississauga-Brampton South, and Vic Dhillon, MPP for Brampton West was in Brampton today. They were joined by Linda Jeffrey, Mayor of Brampton, to open the new lanes–one in each direction–which bring this 12-kilometre portion of Highway 410 to a total of eight lanes. Two more lanes will open in fall 2018, widening the highway to ten lanes and creating or sustaining approximately 1,100 jobs.
Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province’s history.
Making transit more convenient for commuters and families is part of Ontario’s plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
