Ontario Chamber Re-Affirms Commitment To Highway 407 Completion To 35/115

The announcement in June 2010 that the first end of link for the extension would be at Simcoe Street in Oshawa came as a surprise. Then in March of 2011, the province announced that Highway 407 would be extended to Harmony Road by 2015 and to Highway 35/115 by 2020. Since 2004, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce has endorsed the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce call for completion of Hwy 407 to Hwy 35/115 stressing that the negative economic, safety and capital investment impact to Ontario of not proceeding to complete the Eastward Extension—Highway 407 eastward from Brock Rd. in Pickering to Hwy 35/115, is real. This position was re-affirmed unanimously in May 2011 at the Ontario Chamber of Commerce AGM.
