Residents of a Mississauga street were evacuated on Monday night (Jan. 31) due to a natural gas leak. Traffic flow in the area was also disrupted.

Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services sent a tweet at 8:44 p.m. stating the affected residents on Achill Crescent would be evacuated, while Enbridge Gas was to investigate. In total, residents of three homes were evavacuated. The firefighters had set up a command post in the area, and aid was being affected to residents who could be outside in the winter cold for several hours while Enbridge Gas works to fix the leak.

In terms of the effect on traffic, the eastbound Central Parkway was blocked between Joan Drive and Hurontario Street to allow Enbridge’s staff to perform the needed maintenance work.

Just over an hour earlier, Peel police had advised drivers to take alternative routes in order to avoid the area of Central Parkway and Achill Crescent.
