Light Rail Transit in Hamilton
Since 2007 the idea of having a Light Rail Transit (LRT) service in Hamilton has been brought up. Designs have been drawn, communities have prepared, and people have gotten excited. But the promises allowing for such a transit system were broken.
Midway through last year, Hamilton’s city hall seemed to change its mind about the feasibility of such an LRT. As a result, no more progress has been made on the plans, which are now “not a priority”.
In response, a civic campaign has been initiated in which Hamiltonians are calling on each other to ensure that this LRT actually gets built. The initiative can be found at http://hamiltonlightrail.com/
“It’s time for Hamiltonians to remind the City and the Province that we believe – as the City’s and the Province’s studies have confirmed – that LRT is the right decision.”
