Crews contracted by Metrolinx have begun marking utility locations underneath the proposed route for Hamilton, Ontario’s light rail transit system, in case municipal politicians decide to move forward with the project.

The City of Hamilton has been granted $1 billion for the construction of the LRT after requesting the funding in 2015. However, a debate has ensued across the community as to whether or not Hamilton should move forward with the implementation of the rail system.

According to an article from the Hamilton Spectator, the team from T2 Utility Engineers began the work at the beginning of August, and will wrap up the work in the spring.

Hamilton City Council is expected to make a decision on the future of the LRT during a meeting this fall.
