Frequently asked questions

Construction is tentatively scheduled to start June 2020.

Yes, the entire trail (approximately 2.8 km) is being resurfaced to meet AODA standards.

As trails are built or resurfaced throughout the city, standard amenities such as armour stone rest areas, benches, trailhead signage, garbage cans and swing gates are added. These amenities meet AODA standards.

The duration of the trail construction is expected to be approximately five months (weather permitting). Other unforeseen restrictions may extend the project duration.

Yes, the trail connects to Winston Churchill Transitway Station and car pool lot (south of Angel Pass Drive) and there are several transit stops close to the trail. Visit triplinx.ca to plan your trip or to locate transit stops.

The trail connects Golder Community Park, Jim Murray Community Park and McCarron Park. Access to the future Churchill Meadows Community Centre and Park is at the intersection of Janice Drive and Ninth Line.

Once the trail is complete, the City will add line and image markings on the trail surface to show pedestrians and cyclists which side of the trail to stay on.

Dogs are welcome on the trail as long as they are kept on a leash and owners clean up after them (e.g. stoop and scoop).

The City will install regulatory signage prohibiting motorized vehicles on the trail. There are also existing offset gates which will be preserved. These gates prevent vehicles to enter the trail corridor, but allow for wheelchairs, pedestrians, strollers, bicycles to pass through the gates.

The City must install temporary construction fencing to ensure public safety during the trail construction. The construction fencing will be removed as soon as the pertinent trail section is completed, inspected, deemed safe and ready for its intended purpose—public use and enjoyment.

No, the City considers this a public safety issue and wants to ensure that all construction is completed before opening a section of trail to the public. If the construction sequence and schedule change, the City will reopen unaffected corridor sections if they are safe for walking.

Coyote sightings are common in Mississauga and surrounding areas. The City’s website provides resources for residents on coyotes and other wildlife in Mississauga.
