The City of London started constructing the first phase of the Downtown Loop in April 2021. On this website you'll find the latest project information and designs, and learn what's ahead.


The Downtown Loop is the first of London’s new rapid transit projects and includes curbside bus-only lanes and enhanced rapid transit stops. Future phases of the Downtown Loop include Queens Avenue, Ridout Street North and Wellington Street. Construction of these future phases is planned for 2022–2023.

The project will add new streetscape elements as well as transportation and transit improvements above ground, while repairing and replacing aging sewers, watermains and other underground infrastructure. This letter provides details about the project and what to expect.

Construction started in April 2021 and is expected to finish in December 2021 (with limited spring 2022 carry-over work.)


Please watch the introduction video below to get started.
