About this project

In 2024 through until 2026, the City of London will be making improvements at the Greenway Wastewater Treatment Plant to improve flood protection and our resiliency to climate change. These improvements were identified through a Schedule B Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA).

The construction work will mainly consist of building an earth berm around the perimeter of the Greenway Wastewater Treatment Plant but will use walls in certain locations due to the nature of the terrain and footprint limitations.

This work will require a significant amount of large construction machinery (i.e., excavators, loaders, dump trucks and cranes). It will impact the surrounding areas and some city amenities will be disrupted.


Impacts:

  1. Trees: To complete the flood protection measures, 99 trees were removed around the Greenway WWTP, including 5 trees over 50cm at-breast-height. These will be replaced as part of the City’s tree replacement programs.

  2. Thames Valley Parkway (TVP) / Terry Fox Parkway: At a certain phase of the project, it is expected that a closure of the Terry Fox Parkway and the Thames Valley Parkway (TVP) will be required to facilitate work along the north side of Greenway Wastewater Treatment Plant. “No Through Access” in either direction will be necessary for the safety of the public as this will be an active construction zone. The TVP is anticipated to be closed for 60 days and the Terry Fox Parkway closure is anticipated to be closed for 88 days. Both closures will commence sometime after November 1, 2024 and shall not extend beyond March 5, 2025.

  3. Greenway Off-leash Dog Park: The anticipated closure of the Terry Fox Parkway and TVP is expected to affect vehicle and pedestrian access to the off-leash dog park. The dog park will remain open throughout the construction project. However, during the closure of the TVP and Terry Fox Parkway, the dog park will only be accessible by foot or bicycle from Wonderland Road.


Public update meeting

The City hosted a public update meeting on January 11 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m at City Hall about the Greenway and Adelaide Wastewater Treatment Plant Flood Protection Projects. Residents were invited to attend and speak with the project team to learn more about the project, ask questions, and share comments. You can still contact the project team through this webpage to share comments or ask questions.
