Project Overview

TransCanada is proposing to construct approximately 250 kilometres of new natural gas transmission pipeline in Ontario between the City of Markham and the Township of South Dundas. The proposed pipeline will be constructed in four sections and will be 36 inches in diameter primarily following the existing route where TransCanada currently operates two natural gas pipelines.

A new right-of-way will be required for the pipeline. Where possible, the new right-ofway will be located adjacent to the existing corridor. Route adjustments away from the existing pipeline corridor are being considered in some locations due to environmental features, adjacent land uses and construction constraints.

The Project is also proposed to include nine new compressor units at five existing compressor stations located in the Municipality of Clarington, the Township of Alnwick-Haldimand, the Township of Tyendinaga, the City of Kingston and the Township of Augusta. Additional Project information including detailed mapping in each community is available at
