The main function of the road is going to be to bring Hamilton residential taxpayers into Burlington - so Burlington doesn't see much benefit from this construction. If I recall correctly, the agreeement was that Hamilton would fund 95% of the cost and Burlington 5%.

One reason for the high cost compared to other roadway projects is because the road crosses the Escarpment.

The section south of the 403 (funded by Burlington) includes on-road bike lanes from the CNR bridge south just past Plains Road.
