Doug Ford's government picked a route for Highway 413 its own experts said would 'undermine the credibility' of the project. Local residents are baffled - 2022-04-18
At one of the most environmentally sensitive sections of the proposed Highway 413, the province ignored the advice of its own consultants and chose a route that would cause "maximum incursions" into the Greenbelt, farmland and wildlife habitat, according to internal provincial documents seen by the Star.
The consultants also warned that the province's decision on how to route a segment of the proposed 59-kilometre GTA West Transportation Corridor through Vaughan would "undermine the credibility" of the entire project.
The province's decision had two significant outcomes. First, it stopped the four- to six-lane highway running through a future development project in North Kleinburg.
