41st Line – Gas Pipeline Environmental Assessment
Union Gas has advised the Township they will be commencing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to study twinning an existing 8” natural gas pipeline running from Road 88 to the Perth Oxford Road. Phase 1 of this project will see installation of 10.6 km of a 12” steel pipeline within the 41st Line road allowance from Road 88 to the Perth Oxford Road.

The EA will be carried out by AECOM and will determine an available pipeline alignment and any potential environmental concerns with respect to the preferred alternative. It can be anticipated that 41st Line will be disrupted and potentially closed to non-local traffic during construction in summer 2016. Further details will be made available later this summer.
