Can we fix Highway 7?



 

There are lots of opinions about our dear Highway 7.  For commuters between Kitchener and Guelph, it could be called essential, or broken, or both.  It’s our asphalt frenemy.

 

Will we be building a new highway, just to the North?  Maybe.  Widening the existing highway, and Kossuth road as well?  Perhaps.  Fifteen-minute all-day electrified both-way GO train service?  Eventually, one hopes.  High speed rail?  That would be a wonderful thing indeed.  All of these solutions depend on much broader decisions, and won’t appear very quickly.

 

So if we want to take action, personally and immediately, what can we do?  If the problem is too many cars on Highway 7, then dare we suggest: fewer cars on Highway 7?
