Lansdowne Street Facing East at Kawartha Heights Boulevard

What's Happening:

The City of Peterborough is undertaking an operational improvement project for Lansdowne Street West from the intersection of Spillsbury Drive/Kawartha Heights Boulevard, to the intersection of Clonsilla Avenue. The project will refresh this portion of Lansdowne Street, and is being developed to improve vehicular, pedestrian, and cycling accessibility and safety.

The general goals of this project are to:

  • Improve traffic flow, vehicle safety and driveway access by constructing a centre two-way left-turn lane;
  • Improve the lane arrangements at the Spillsbury Drive/Kawartha Heights Boulevard, and Clonsilla Avenue intersections;
  • Improve vehicular and pedestrian safety;
  • Add/improve pedestrian and cyclist facilities, including off-street multi-use trails on both the north and south sides of the roadway; and,
  • Improve access to commercial and residential properties within the corridor.

This project is being undertaken in general accordance with recommendations set out in the approved Environmental Study Report (ESR) for Lansdowne Street West dated September, 2012. The ESR is available through the link on this page for reference.

Phasing:

This project is planned to be constructed in phases, with the anticipated phases as follows:

  • Phase 1 (2022): Utility relocations, Clonsilla Avenue roadworks, Clonsilla Avenue intersection works, and a portion of Lansdowne Street roadworks leading from the Clonsilla Avenue intersection heading west.
  • Phase 2 (2023): Spillsbury Drive roadworks, Kawartha Heights Boulevard roadworks, Spillsbury Drive/Kawartha Heights Boulevard intersection works, and the remainder of Lansdowne Street roadworks not included in Phase 1.

Please note that the phasing details outlined above are estimates, and could be subject to change.

How can you be heard?

As part the project process, we are collecting feedback from the community to ensure the project is meeting the community's needs. We encourage you to provide your input and feedback through the Questions section found at the bottom of this page.

Your feedback is valuable in ensuring the improvements to this portion of Lansdowne Street are suited to the needs of the community. Please note that we value your feedback, and though we will review and consider all input we receive, changes to the project based on community input will only be made where deemed feasible by the project team.
