Budget Briefs - Roadway Improvements - TW

Our weekly series “Budget Briefs” lets residents know how our community will be benefitting from specific investments in Burlington’s approved 2023 Operating and Capital Budget.

    Is there no plans before 2026 to address Appleby Line and Upper Middle Road and widening both roads to 6 lanes? Every development application (approved or otherwise) in the area has identified the need for both roads to be expanded to accommodate the projected traffic generated by the developments (including studies done during covid when traffic was significantly less). The city just “upgraded” the intersection at Upper Middle/Appleby Line which was surprising considering the congestion that currently exists and the highlighted needs for expansion to 6 lanes. It currently takes 25+ minutes for 3km to get from Corpus Christie high school on Upper Middle to QEW/Appleby Line as an example. For those that live in the Orchard there are windows in the day where you are almost trapped in your neighborhood.

    I am on board with biking options but someone seriously needs to look at biking on Appleby Line if this is being used a tool in TDM. As it is currently, it is very unsafe considering the amount of traffic, width of lanes, the amount of driveways, sightlines and by no means is this area of Burlington walkable/bikeable as it keeps getting described as. This is going to continue to get worse until these roads are expanded

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
