London unveils busy 2024 capital works program

LONDON, ONT. — The City of London, Ont. has reported on its capital plans for the 2024 construction season including continuing projects and new launches.

Details about the 2024 construction season and London’s Renew Construction Program will be released early in the spring, stated a release. 

Projects planned for construction in 2024 include Fanshawe Park Road and Richmond Street Intersection Improvements Phase 2, between both legs of North Centre Road; Clark’s Bridge Widening on Wellington Road from north of the Thames River to Watson Street; East London Link Phase 3 at Dundas Street and Highbury Avenue; and Sunningdale Road and Richmond Street Intersection Improvements.

The work planned in 2023 across the city included building new bus-only lanes for future rapid transit operations, a new two-lane roundabout, intersection improvements, enhancements to bike lanes and the active transportation network, and the installation of new traffic signals, lighting and other streetscape elements.

“This was another busy year for construction in London and all this work was necessary to continuing to support growth and development in our city,” said Jennie Dann, director of construction and infrastructure services, in a statement.

Projects completed or wrapping up soon include the Southdale Road and Colonel Talbot Road Roundabout, Fanshawe Park Road and Richmond Street Intersection Improvements on Richmond Street, the Quebec Street Infrastructure Renewal, Dingman Drive Improvements, and East London Link Phase 1 on King Street, Dundas Street and Egerton Street.

Others included the Downtown Loop Phase 2 on Queens Avenue and the Wellington Gateway Phase 1 on Wellington Street from York Street to the Thames River.

Also in 2023, a new two-lane roundabout was built to reconfigure the Southdale Road West and Colonel Talbot Road intersection, allowing the road to reopen more than three weeks ahead of schedule. Two new steel arches for the Victoria Bridge were lifted in place as bridge reconstruction continues. A new concrete deck has been poured advancing the construction work for the project, which is planned for substantial completion and reopening by late spring of 2024. 

Major excavation and roadbuilding for the Adelaide Underpass began this year and will continue over the winter months, aiming for substantial completion by summer of 2024.

Also this year, the first 1.4 kilometres of rapid transit lanes were painted red on both sides of King Street between downtown and Old East Village in preparation for future transit operations. 

In total, 40 local streets were reconstructed under the Infrastructure Renewal and Local Roads Reconstruction programs, upgrading infrastructure and improving our roads and sewers for Londoners.

Construction of the Downtown Loop Phase 3, Wellington Gateway and Adelaide Underpass will also continue in 2024.
