Honda, Walton team on Industrial Parkway upgrades to service own projects

Posted June 16, 2014

Honda Canada and Walton Alliston are working jointly on required upgrades to Industrial Parkway sparked by coinicidental timing of their own separate construction projects.

Honda's Plant 1 is growing to facilitate an instrument panel line and the expansion of Plant 2 is to create a material storage and handling area which moves internally from Simcoe Parts Service (SPS), located on the southside of Industrial. Walton is preparing its site for Simcoe County's new paramedic station, as well as installing water and wastewater services for its Alliston Industrial Business Park whose lots are listed between $370,000 to $425,000 per acre.

"As such, the two proposed entrances to the future Industrial Lands to the south will intersect with the existing and future Honda entrances noted above and these intersection works are included in the Development Agreement," according to the Town's planning report on tonight's council agenda. "The proposed work area is on Industrial Parkway beginning on the east side of the CPR tracks and extending approximately 1.1 kilometres easterly, which is approximately 300 m west of intersection servicing Honda and Simcoe Parts Service. Two full movement signalized intersections are also proposed as part of the project. The west intersection will be a new signalized intersection allowing for vehicular movement into the future Walton Industrial
Subdivision and the Honda lands. To help facilitate the west intersection, the existing driveway entrance into the Honda Recreation Facility will be closed with access provided internally though the Honda lands. The east intersection will reconfigure the existing signalized Honda entrance and will allow access into the future Walton Subdivision."

The estimated $3.9 million project is expected to begin in July, and also include night time construction to minimize traffic disruptions.
