ELGIN COUNTY—Jeff Yurek, MPP for Elgin-Middlesex-London, is thrilled to announce the long-awaited removal of the Ministry of Transportation land designation along Highway 3 in the eastern portion of Elgin County.


Through Order in Council 699/2021, the Ministry revokes the 1970 Controlled-Access Highway designation of potions of Highway 3 in the Township of Malahide, Town of Aylmer, and County of Elgin. This amendment is fully supported by all affected municipalities.


“I am proud to have achieved this significant economic development opportunity for Elgin County and local municipalities,” said Jeff Yurek, MPP. “Now that the designation has been lifted, municipalities can begin planning to attract new development that will benefit from our strong local economy and transportation networks.”
