Final budget, completion date still uncertain for Hamilton LRT

Metrolinx executive told HHCA’s Construction Forecast audience last week the agency is making solid progress on its Hamilton LRT project version 2.0 with early works begun and significant details now nailed down, but two big ones still unconfirmed – cost and completion date.

Jason Fellen, vice-president for Hamilton light rail transit for the agency, offered members of the Hamilton-Halton Construction Association an update on the complex 14-kilometre project during the HHCA’s 2024 forecast event. Fellen told the Hamilton builders Metrolinx has chosen to proceed with an Alliance model for package one project procurement due to the build’s abundance of risks, mainly linked to the multitude of aging and newer utilities that will have to be relocated. Afterwards, in an interview, he said Metrolinx will be “smart and thoughtful” in managing the project.
