Ontario’s Premier has touched on a number of local topics, including LRT construction, during a visit to the McMaster Innovation Park.
She agrees that communication will be key as the city moves forward on the billion dollar, provincially funded project.
Wynne stresses that people need to know, “step by step”, what is happening. That includes how long it is going to last, how much noise there is going to be and for how long the dust is going to settle.
The city and Metrolinx recently finalized plans for an LRT office which includes a communications strategy.
LRT construction is scheduled to begin in 2019, and be finished in 2024. An update on the project’s design will be presented next Monday to the city’s LRT subcommittee.
The Premier is travelling to post-secondary institutions, businesses and other locations across the province this week — looking to highlight her government’s economic growth and job creation efforts.
