Hwy 6 Morriston Bypass, end the gridlock

    1. Petition by

      COP Committee Puslinch

Following an evaluation of Hwy #6 South in the early 1980's, the Morriston Highway #6 By-Pass Project was presented to the MTO in 1994.  To date little progress has been made despite the fact that numerous meetings by Township Councillors & local residents have been held with a succession of MTO Ministers;  22 lives have been lost; traffic congestion has grown exponentially;  truck traffic has increased from 12% to 30%;  growing numbers of frustrated drivers speed over rural roads to avoid Morriston/Aberfoyle traffic congestion.  The 33 year delay in the construction of the realignment cries out for resolution.  

By signing this petition to the Minister of Transport, you will add your voice to that of thousands, motorists & residents who are negatively impacted daily by this delay.

The chronic traffic congestion has an economic & environment impact to the region.

To:
Ontario Government, Hon. Glen Murray MPP. Minister of Transportation
Hwy 6 Morriston Bypass, end the gridlock

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The traffic in Morriston is ridiculous and dangerous.

      The amount of constant congestion is a great safety concern when I regularly travel this route with my son to get him to his dad's house.

      I drive Hwy 6 daily to south Guelph and have had to find an alternate route many mornings to avoid this congestion.

      I travel Hwy 6 every day. It's about time for a new highway.
