East London Link - Infrastructure Renewal and Transit
The East London Link will revitalize more than 6 km of road from Downtown to Fanshawe College. The project will add rapid transit and transportation improvements including transit links to the City's eastern industrial employment areas. At the same time, the City will repair and replace again sewers and watermains.
The City of London will soon begin constructing Phase 1 of the East London Link and Municipal Infrastructure Improvements on King Street between Wellington Street and Lyle Street. Construction is planned to start in March 2022 and be completed by December 2022, with some planned carry-over work in spring/summer 2023.
