Important announcement regarding Hamilton LRT project

Dec. 16, 2019

HAMILTON - Today, the Government of Ontario announced the cancellation of the procurement for the Hamilton LRT project.

Infrastructure Ontario has notified the Proponent teams who were bidding on the project. As per the Break Fee policy outlined in the Request for Proposals, teams will receive a stipend according to their involvement in the procurement process. IO and Metrolinx will be meeting with teams in the coming days to discuss next steps.

Over the coming weeks, the Province will work with the City to determine alternative opportunities to deliver on its $1 billion funding commitment to ensure the City gets the transportation infrastructure that it needs.

We look forward to working together with our industry partners to deliver on more than $60 billion worth of projects highlighted in our Fall 2019 P3 Market Update.
