MONTREAL — The federal government has slowed the timeline on a faster passenger railway set to stretch from Toronto to Quebec City.
Transport Minister Omar Alghabra said July 20 he hopes the high-frequency rail line will be running by the mid-2030s — rather than the early 2030s, which he projected as recently as March.
The passenger cars are expected to pass through Montreal, Trois-Rivieres and other Quebec and Ontario municipalities that sit between Toronto and Quebec City, running at up to 200 km/h. The corridor would also include stops in Ottawa and Peterborough, Ont.
