Ontario has mapped out a preliminary route for a major new highway through the north end of the Greater Toronto Area.

Revived last year after being scrapped by the previous government, the greenfield highway would run southwest from Hwy. 400 in Vaughan, through Bolton, Caledon and Brampton, before turning south and terminating at the junction of Hwy. 401 and Hwy. 407, at the westernmost tip of Mississauga.

Any construction on the project remains several years aways, but early plans for the route include up to six lanes, integrated transit with stations for passengers and truck parking.
