·1 min read

Waterloo — Platinum Drive, a new road on the west side of Waterloo officially opened yesterday.

“Platinum Drive is a game-changer and time-saver for anyone who lives or commutes in the west side of Waterloo,” said Mayor Dave Jaworsky in a statement.

The road connects Columbia and Erb Streets. It is intended to ease commuter traffic on the west side of the city and to relieve the roundabout at Ira Needles Boulevard and Erb Street.

It will also connect a new 126-acre business park planned for 2021.
