Mainland Linear Trail

The Mainland Linear Trail is a five kilometer “active transportation greenway” that links neighbourhoods from Fairview to Wedgewood Park to schools, parks, hiking trails, the Lacewood Transit Terminal, the Canada Games Centre and more along the power-line corridor.

The Halifax Regional Municipality and the Halifax North West Trails Association are in the process of working with a consulting firm (WSP) to plan enhancements to the Mainland Linear Trail, including an extension south which would link it to the popular Chain of Lakes Trail and an extension north which would link it to the Larry Uteck Boulevard Greenway and new communities in Bedford South and Bedford West.

The planning study includes route assessment, development of functional designs, cost estimates and a consultation for the three proposed AT extensions including:

1. south to the Chain of Lakes Trail

2. north to the “waterline trail”; and

3. between the waterline trail and the Larry Uteck Boulebard Greenway.

The project will also consider improvements to the existing Mainland Linear Trail and include a list of options for enhancing the facility through the addition of amenities and neighbourhood connections.

An information session is scheduled for Wednesday, October 7 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Canada Games Centre in the Community Room.
