Light rail transit from Amherstburg to Windsor pitched
Amherstburg councillor wants feasibility study conducted
An Amherstburg councillor wants a light rail transit service between her town and Windsor, with stops in LaSalle.
Carolyn Davies wants a feasibility study done on using train tracks such as those owned by the Essex Terminal Railway.
"We could possibly make better use of those empty rail lines, to either have commuters go back and forth to work, to play, to doctor's appointments or tourists to come into town," she said.
The issue will be discussed at a future council meeting.
"I'd like to be able to just sit down, see what the reality could be, to take advantage of that rail line," she said. "Depending on its route, it could go from Amherstburg right through LaSalle, right into Windsor."
Davies says senior government funds would be needed.
