New LRT Tunnel Alignment Announced

On Jul 14, 2011 a report was tabled to City Council announcing that the LRT tunnel would be shifted to an alignment along Queen Street rather than the original 'cross-country route' under the deep foundations of downtown highrises. This new route will enable the two downtown stations to be considerably shallower (15m vs 30m) and will also provide more flexibility to the construction team in terms of potential construction techniques making it more probable for the City to tender for a fixed price contract.
