Enbridge Gas is proposing a pipeline project to meet the increased demand for energy in Hamilton, Brantford, Brant County, North Dumfries, Haldimand County, and Norfolk County. Work for all components will be located within existing road allowances and easements where possible in order to minimize disruption. Station upgrades may be required as part of this project.

Component 1: ‘Brantford Lateral’, is located in the Township of North Dumfries and the County of Brant. This component will consist of a steel natural gas transmission pipeline, which may range from 13 to 16.6 km in length, and will have a pipeline diameter of 12, 16, or 20-inches. Four pipeline route options are being considered. All route options begin at an existing station north of the intersection of Cheese Factory Road and Maple Manor Road in the Township of North Dumfries, and terminate at an existing station on Governors Road East just east of the intersection with Park Road North, in Brant County at the border with the City of Brantford. Option 1 would travel south long Cheese Factory Road through the community of St. George (Brant County), and then west along Governors Road East. Option 2 would travel south along Cheese Factory Road, west on Maple Manor Road and south on the Brantford Highway, then east on Governors Road East. Options 3 and 4 would travel south along the same route, which follows the easement of an existing natural gas pipeline. Option 3 would involve the installation of a pipeline parallel to the existing pipeline, while Option 4 would involve the replacement of the existing pipeline.

Component 2: ‘Port Dover East’, is located in Haldimand County and Norfolk County. This component consists of a 3 km steel natural gas distribution pipeline, extending east along Highway 3 from the intersection with Highway 6 (in Norfolk County) to the intersection with Haldimand Road 70, in Haldimand County near Nanticoke. The two options being considered for this component include the installation of a new four-inch diameter pipeline parallel to the existing two-inch diameter steel pipeline line, or the replacement of the existing pipeline with a six-inch diameter steel pipeline.

Component 3: ‘Dickenson Road’, is located in the City of Hamilton. This component consists of the installation of a six inch diameter polyethylene (PE) pipeline commencing at Aeropark Boulevard and running west for 1.6 km, in Hamilton.  Installation will be completed along an existing two-inch PE pipeline.

Component 4: ‘Nebo Road’, is located in the City of Hamilton. This component consists of the installation of a six-inch diameter PE pipeline commencing at 20 Road East and running south for 700 m, in Hamilton. Installation will be completed along an existing two-inch PE pipeline.
