Canada region wins $2.5M for light rail assessment

Posted on May 17, 2004

The governments of Canada and Ontario announced the joint funding of up to $2.5 million for technical and environmental studies for a light rail transit project serving the region of Waterloo. The studies will examine a proposed 8.6-mile light rail transit section along the central corridor, which will run north-south to connect the cities of Kitchener and Waterloo. The line would be the first phase of an 18-mile line that will ultimately extend to Cambridge. Transport Canada and the Region of Waterloo will equally share the cost of the technical studies, to a maximum of $500,000. The environmental assessment will be funded jointly by the Government of Ontario and Waterloo. The total cost of all the studies is estimated at up to $2.5 million.
