After weeks of discussions—and some complaints about the lengthy roll-out process—more lanes are now available to cyclists and pedestrians in Mississauga.

Recently, the City of Mississauga announced that its network of temporary active transportation lanes has expanded to include walking lanes in the City Centre neighbourhood. 

According to the city, sections of City Centre Drive, Living Arts Drive, Prince of Wales Drive and Burnhamthorpe Rd. W. between Confederation Pkwy and Kariya Drive have been closed for use by local pedestrians.

These lanes are the latest to be opened in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the pronounced need for more outdoor space for cyclists and pedestrians. Earlier this month, the city announced the opening of another active transportation lane on Glen Erin Dr. between Britannia Rd. W. and Aquitaine Ave. 

The lanes are designed to give local walkers, runners and cyclists additional space to practise physical distancing while outside.

The first temporary bike lanes were installed on King St. in Cooksville

More temporary lanes could be created in the coming days and weeks.
