Is there a link to the slides & maps? I can't find it on the Metrolinx website.
Is this a slip or is Bissonauth saying that electrification is part of their EA on the Guelph Sub? I've followed Kitchener Line news for some time and never seen any mention of potential electrification west of Georgetown, and the planned electrification study area I read about years ago only seemed to go as far as Bramalea. Given that the article spells Bissonauth's name wrong in the quote I don't have high hopes, but this seems really surprising.When asked about the timeline for the project Bissanauth wrote, “Metrolinx is in the pre-planning and assessment phase for the electrification and infrastructure Environmental Assessment, which will include public consultation. Stay tuned for more information.”
At least it was only closed to cars (asphalting incomplete) and not to trains (steel complete)It's too bad that, as usual, the progress of construction did not go nearly as well as their media spin did.
A number of level crossings remain closed this morning as they did not complete the paving operations overnight.
