Where We Are
In 2016, the Valley Line West received funding through the Government of Canada’s Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) to update the preliminary design that was completed in 2013. The funding also covers work to determine the most appropriate project delivery method (P3, for example) and to develop a business case for construction funding. This work will position the City to be procurement ready when new funding becomes available.
While there are no timelines for additional funding, the City hopes to be ready to initiate the procurement phase as early as 2018. Once additional funding is secured, it is is anticipated it would take about one year to select a contractor for the Valley Line West and another five years to complete construction.
