WINDSOR, ONT. —
Windsor Ward 7 by-election candidate Jeewen Gill has concerns about the timeline surrounding Banwell Road infrastructure upgrades.
Gill says he is glad to see construction has started but has concerns about when it will be completed along with the planned distribution of funding.
“As a candidate running in the by-election, I will be a strong advocate and will do everything in my power for Banwell Road to be expanded earlier than projected,” he said in a news release.
Construction has started on a $2.5-million Banwell Road upgrade that includes widening the road, new sidewalks and a multi-use trail. Phase 1 of the two-phase improvement project has started with construction on Tecumseh Road East and Palmetto Street.
Gill says the city currently has $3.05 million allocated toward Banwell Road infrastructure in 2020 and more planned over the coming years. He says as per the city’s 2020 capital funding
