Recreation and Parks Master Plan
The Township of Puslinch has prepared a Master Plan to guide the development of recreation and parks facilities and programs over the next 10 years.
The Master Plan is a balance between the needs and desires of the public and the realities of implementation – the end result being a Plan that meets the highest priority needs of Township’s present and future populations.
Highway 6 Bypass Project
On March 29, 2016, the Province of Ontario announced it is moving forward with plans to improve traffic flow on Highway 6 between Freelton and Guelph, which will create jobs and reduce congestion.
This project includes a new five-kilometre route that bypasses the community of Morriston and provides an improved connection to Highway 401 and the Hanlon Expressway in Guelph.
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is moving forward with a Preliminary Design Review and Detailed Design under the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for improvements to Highway 6 and Highway 401 in the Township of Puslinch, Wellington County, and the City of Hamilton. Interested persons are encouraged to visit the project website to obtain additional information, provide comments or to be placed on the project mailing list.

Morriston Streetscaping Project
The Morriston Highway 6 Streetscape Strategy was created to help mitigate traffic concerns and improve the pedestrian environment. This plan builds upon recent initiatives in Morriston, which include larger speed signs, zebra striping of the main intersection off Highway 6 and Badenoch Street and the community safety zone.
The Township has allocated funding in its 2013 and 2014 Capital Budget for this project. The remaining funds are proposed to be budgeted in 2015 and 2016.
An application has been made to the Ministry of Transportation to approve and implement the plan.
