New Information about the Adelaide Street Underpass 2021

Please see below for the latest communication from the City of London’s Transportation Planning and Design Division.

The Community Association continues to participate with the Woodfield and Piccadilly Associations on the “Adelaide Street Grade Separation Project Steering Group.Currently, we are waiting to resume discussions with City staff and their consultants about design details and opportunities for public input. Meantime, please forward any comments about the notice to Mr. Dale Garfield at :

Hello Everyone,

I am contacting you to share information regarding advance construction activities that will be happening this fall in preparation for the construction of the new Adelaide Street Underpass in 2021.

Properties located at 600 Adelaide Street North and 625 Adelaide Street North have been purchased by the City for this project and are slated for demolition. It is anticipated that this demolition will begin in early September and completed by the end of September. There may be additional demolition work required through the fall of 2020.

Enbridge (Union Gas) is also currently working on the project site. The following utility companies are also expected to begin work in fall 2020; London Hydro, Bell Canada, and Rogers Communications. Our goal is to keep McMahen Park open for public use as much as possible throughout these advance utility works. Additionally, CP Rail will be realigning its most northerly track this fall and we will keep you informed as more details of their schedule are available.

Thank you for your continued participation and support for this important infrastructure project.

– Garfield

Dundas Cycling Projects

On Thursday, February 27, 2020, the City of London is hosting an open house for two Dundas Street infrastructure projects designed to improve east-west cycling connections and better links to transit:

  • Dundas Cycle Track
  • This project will connect Downtown with Old East Village by creating a permanent, separated east-west cycling route on Dundas Street between Wellington Street and Adelaide Street, and on William Street between Dundas Street and Queens Avenue. The project is part of the broader East-West Bikeway, designed to strengthen east-west cycling connections.
  • Dundas-Thames Valley Parkway (TVP) Connection
  • Today there is a break in cycling infrastructure between Dundas Street and the Thames Valley Parkway. This project will slightly shift the alignment of Dundas Street to better align the intersection and street with Dundas Place and create a continuous connection in the cycling network heading onto Dundas Street from the TVP.

The purpose of the open house is to collect Londoners’ feedback to assess design options for each project. City staff and engineering consultants will be available to share information, collect input, and answer questions on both projects.


When: Thursday, February 27, 2020, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Where: Catholic Central High School, 450 Dundas St., Cafeteria

Transit routes: 2, 20

Bike parking: Secure bike parking will be provided by the City of London at the venue.

New Building at Dundas and Hewitt

Please see below for details about an upcoming Community Information Meeting for a new build by Medallion Properties at Dundas and Hewitt Streets. We would strongly encourage residents with an interest in redevelopment in Old East Village to look closely at the Medallion proposal. Without rendering an opinion on the merits of the proposal at this point, we would point out that that this building has a very large footprint (‘base’) that seems incongruent with the City’s preference for point towers with significant step-backs from the street level podium. The initial renderings, especially along Hewitt Street, portray a building that could be seen by some as monolithic and out-of-scale.
