Brooklin Construction Rumour Mill!
Where to start? With the 407 of course! The single most asked question in Brooklin. “What’s happening with the 407?” Four-laning of Highway 7 for 12 kilometres, from Brock Road to Highway 12, began in 2010 and is scheduled to be opened to traffic by the end of 2012. On March 10, 2011 a plan was announced to extend Highway 407 East from Brock Road in Pickering to Highway 35/115 by 2020 with the following goal dates:
- By late 2015 – 22 km of new east-west highway from Brock Road in Pickering to Harmony Road in Oshawa, and a 10 km north-south highway (West Durham Link (WDL) connecting Highway 407 East to Highway 401 will be open to traffic
- By 2017 – Highway 407 East from Harmony Road to Taunton/East Durham Link will be open to traffic
- By 2020 – the section from Taunton/East Durham Link to Highway 35/115, and a 10 km north-south highway (East Durham Link) connecting Highway 407 East and Highway 401 will be open, completing the project
A website is set up with the complete map and interchanges approved: www.highway407east.com
