Waterdown Infrastructure Plan Background
Many years ago, developers approached the City of Hamilton, applying for building permits in various areas of Waterdown. The City of Hamilton turned down the applications and the developers went to the Ontario Municipal Board, whereby they were granted permission to build, although there was not sufficient infrastructure in place. Since Councillor Partridge has been in office, she has worked relentlessly in hope of expediting the much needed infrastructure.
As a result, Waterdown has ongoing new builds going up, in particular south of Dundas Street (Mountainview Heights), north of Dundas (Mattamy) and of course north of Parkside, from Centre Road west to Bousfield Court and north to the by-pass.
The plans for Clappison Drive to connect up to Parkside Drive and Clappison Power Centre from Dundas Street are underway – there is some necessary bridge work that needs to be completed, and City staff are currently waiting for the applicant to submit drawings to review before moving forward with construction.
Waterdown East-West Road (North Waterdown Drive)
Construction of North Waterdown Drive within the new developments (from Mosiac to Centre Road) is scheduled for 2019. The segment of road from Centre Road to Avonsyde will be delivered by by the Public Works Department and construction is scheduled for 2021. Click here for more information.

Replacing Dundas Street Grindstone Bridge
Phase one of the bridge replacement will involve relocating utilities in and around the bridge such as water and hydro. An Environmental Assessment of the area is currently underway. For more information, click here.
The City contracted Coco Paving Inc. to urbanize Parkside Drive including new sewer lines, provision of bike lanes, sidewalks on both sides, and intersection signalization. Upgrades included a continuous centre turning between Main Street West and Highway #6, new sidewalks, bike lanes, three new stoplight intersections and pedestrian crossings. The upgrades were completed in 2018. Click here for more information
