Building a Better Halton is Halton’s infrastructure construction plan. This plan covers road, water and wastewater projects.
This year, Council approved $362 million in infrastructure investments. These investments will benefit residents across the region — from Burlington to Halton Hills to Milton to Oakville.
We are upgrading and maintaining current infrastructure, and adding new services to meet the needs of residents and business owners. In 2010, for example, we are completing key road projects such as:
- Derry Road Widening from two to four lanes from Tremaine Road to Bronte Street,
- Upper Middle Road and Burloak Road Widening from two to four lanes from Scott Drive all the way down to the QEW,
- Tremaine Road Widening from two to four lanes from Derry Road to Main Street.
To help keep residents informed about these and other Building a Better Halton construction projects, we are producing a number of communication vehicles.
The new construction projects web page, provides updates on all of our infrastructure construction activities. Brochures and door knockers are also used selectively. We only produce these materials when we need to reach residents or business owners in a targeted neighbourhood with specific project information (such as next steps or environmental considerations) that may impact them.
Building a Better Halton has a distinct visual identity that you will see across Halton Region. For example, Public Works Commissioner, Mitch Zamojc, and I are shown here with the first road construction sign using the new Building a Better Halton identity.
We are Building a Better Halton to ensure that Halton remains a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
