  • May 30, 2018, via Halifax Northwest Trails Association:
    Safety Alert: For regular users of the Mainland Linear Trail, please be aware of scheduled construction and upgrades along the Trail. Work is planned during June at four neighbourhood connections after previous community consultation. Westridge Drive will become a Gateway to the trail and Mainland Common including paving of the parking lot, and addition of some new pathways; the connections to Mary Clayton Park and the Canada Games Centre and opposite Park West School, and traffic calming at Langbrae Drive. Pay attention to the construction team for your own safety. We hope you will be pleased with these improvements. (This construction was rescheduled from Fall 2017).
