  9. Problem and Opportunity Statement Wyecroft Road and South Service Road West between Bronte Road and Kerr Street is a multi-purpose arterial that connects existing employment lands to Regional roads and the QEW. Corridor improvements are required to meet the needs of the town to 2041 and support future population and employment growth. Providing appropriate infrastructure will encourage active transportation (walking, cycling) and transit, in an attractive and safe way, in support of the Town’s vision to be the most livable town in Canada. Corridor improvements are required that: • Integrate planned facilities for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit with regard for the movement of trucks and general traffic • Optimize traffic operations to increase capacity, improve safety, and manage local access • Protect or improve the natural environment, including existing watercourse crossings, treescape and natural areas • Maintain existing access during construction and protect for future land uses and access Wyecroft Road Improvements 8 Class Environmental Assessment
