Ontario Announces Groundbreaking of Highway 413 in 2025: “Will benefit Ontarians for generations to come” Amarjot Sandhu MPP

The Ontario government, in collaboration with the federal government, is pleased to announce the initiation of Highway 413, set to begin construction in 2025. This major infrastructure development aims to significantly reduce traffic congestion and drive economic growth throughout Halton, Peel, and York regions. The project, which integrates stringent environmental protections, aligns with Ontario’s commitment to sustainable development and improved quality of life for its residents.

Premier Doug Ford expressed his enthusiasm about the project, stating, “Highway 413 is a prosperity corridor that will dramatically cut through gridlock and enhance the commuting experience across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. We are committed to improving the lives of Ontarians by facilitating faster and more efficient travel.”

The project is anticipated to inject $350 million into Ontario’s GDP and will create approximately 3,500 union jobs each year during the construction phase. It is a strategic component of the government’s plan to support the province’s growing population and its economic prosperity.

Prabmeet Sarkaria, Minister of Transportation, highlighted the importance of the project for the region’s future. “Highway 413 will bring much-needed relief to drivers across the GTA,” he said. “Our goal is to give Ontarians back their time to enjoy life’s important moments instead of being stuck in traffic.”

  • In support of the project, Patrick Brown, Mayor of Brampton, remarked, “With the significant population increase in Brampton, it is critical to address our long-term transportation needs and better connect our urban growth centers. The movement of goods and services is vital for our city and the broader region. I am thrilled to see progress being made on this essential infrastructure.”

Amarjot Sandhu, MPP for Brampton West, also praised the project. “Highway 413 is crucial for the fastest growing region of Ontario. Our members, the men and women building our province, are proud to support and construct this infrastructure that will benefit Ontarians for generations to come,” he said.

Leaders from various industry associations have expressed their support for Highway 413, highlighting its potential to reduce commute times, facilitate new housing and industrial development, and enhance the overall economic landscape of the Greater Toronto Area.

Nadia Todorova, Executive Director of the Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario, noted, “Highway 413 represents a vital artery for the GTA’s economic growth and connectivity. Its construction will not only generate thousands of jobs but also improve our quality of life.”

As Ontario prepares for this transformative project, the government remains committed to engaging with stakeholders and the public to ensure the successful integration of Highway 413 into the province’s transportation network. Public consultations and detailed project updates will be made available on the government’s official website.

This initiative marks a significant step forward in Ontario’s transportation planning, promising to enhance the infrastructure and economic prosperity of the province for years to come.
