The Government of Ontario announced that it is taking the next step to build a high-speed rail line that will connect Windsor, London, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Toronto.
The start of an environmental assessment marks the next phase of the project, which includes identifying the most appropriate route, examining state-of-the-art transportation technology options and an environmental impact evaluation.
The study will be guided by consultations in early 2015 with municipal and business groups, as well as with First Nation and Métis communities.
High-speed rail service connecting Windsor, London, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Toronto is part of the government’s long-term transit and infrastructure plan. This plan will make nearly $29 billion available over the next 10 years for investments in priority infrastructure projects across the province, including public transit, roads, bridges and highways.
