​Will the quarry affect my commute?

​​Most likely. Highway 7 is the main commuting thoroughfare and it is also the proposed haul route, eastward through Acton towards the GTA according to the plan in the application.  Trucks will be running from 6 am to 6 pm, coinciding with the busiest commuting times.  The 6th Line Eramosa – Hwy 7 intersection will be a pinch point as heavily loaded trucks try to turn left onto Hwy 7 and accelerate up to the 80 kph limit–you know how long that takes.  Nassagaweya 5th Line, a 20 metre jog south and east of Eramosa 6th Line will also be seriously impacted. By the way, there is no guarantee that truck traffic won’t end up going west through Rockwood to serve markets west of here, such as the new Hwy 7 construction planned between Guelph and Kitchener or other Wellington County projects. Finally, there is also no guarantee that, in spite of JDCL’s assurances, trucks won’t use the Nassagaweya 5th and 6th lines to avoid going through Acton.  Your commute certainly won’t get better!
