City to abandon BSAR, looking west to Oak Park Road

BRANTFORD — Brantford’s City Council is taking action to abandon the Brantford Southern Access Road in favour of an Oak Park Road extension that would connect West Brant to the 403.

The city’s Council unanimously approved a $950,000 environmental assessment of the property the proposed extension would cross.

The suggested route would see a new bridge crossing the Grand River — and is estimated to be over $86 million dollars to complete.

The council moved to sell property purchased by the city in order to build the BSAR.

That proposed road was long opposed by Six Nations as it was seeking to cross reserve land at the Glebelands, adjacent to Mohawk Park.
