High Speed Rail

High Speed Rail

The Township of Zorra is taking steps to support our community's response to COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) and measures taken by Southwestern Public Health. We are monitoring our operations daily to ensure we are taking the right actions to protect our residents, employees and visitors. Visit our COVID-19 page for regular updates.

The Province is moving ahead with preliminary design work on a high speed rail (HSR) project and investing $15 million in a comprehensive environmental assessment. This project was announced on May 19, 2017, and follows the recommendations in a report filed with the Province prepared by a Special Advisor tasked to review alternatives for the delivery of HSR in Ontario.
