Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • Terwillegar Drive, one of Edmonton’s busiest roads, is in need of upgrades to make it a freeway;
  • This road is consistently clogged with commuter traffic because primary access between southwest Edmonton and the rest of the city is through Whitemud and Terwillegar Drives;
  • The area of Edmonton served by Terwillegar Drive between Whitemud and Anthony Henday has a population of approximately 50,000 and only two other access points to the rest of the city via 23rd Ave NW or 53rd Ave NW;
  • There have been many attempts over the past two decades to develop solutions to the growing traffic problem, but nothing beyond reports has materialized;
  • The federal government recently pledged almost $40 million to expand the industrial 50 Street, which does not see as much traffic as Terwillegar Drive; and
  • Southwest Edmonton is one of the fastest growing areas of the city, completely lacks LRT, and needs better infrastructure for its residents.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to make this infrastructure project an immediate priority.
