Terwillegar Drive, one of Edmonton’s busiest roads, is in need of upgrades to make it a freeway. The road is consistently clogged with commuter traffic. There have been many attempts over the past two decades to develop solutions to the growing traffic problem, but nothing beyond reports has materialized. The federal government recently pledged almost $40 million to expand the industrial 50 Street, which does not see as much traffic as Terwillegar Drive. Southwest Edmonton is one of the fastest growing areas of the city, completely lacks LRT, and needs better infrastructure for its residents.
