Projects, construction and betterments.


Belleville, Ont.—A committee has been appointed by the Belleville, Ont., Board of Trade, to negotiate with the G.T.R. respecting the construction of an electric railway to the cement works.

Brantford and Hamilton Ry.—The inspection of this railway by the Government Engineer has been completed , and it was expected to be opened for traffic by Dec. 31. (Dec, 1907, pg. 927.)


Grand Valley Ry.—The final survey of the projected electric railway between Brantford and Woodstock, Ont., is reported to have been completed. The route is by way of Burford, Cathcart and Eastwood. This would connect up the company's lines in Brantford city, and the Brantford-Paris-Galt line with its Woodstock, Thames Valley and Ingersoll Ry. The company was recently reported to have been negotiating with the Ontario Hydro-Electric Power Commission for the supply of about 3,000 h.p. for use on its lines. The General Manager of the company stated subsequently that prior to the change of control one of the officials applied for information as to price, etc., of power, but no one was applying on behalf of the company as at present constituted. (Nov., 1907, pg. 841.)


Toronto and York Radial Ry.—An application was made Dec. 17 to the Ontario Railway and Municipal Board by East Toronto township, to compel the company to carry out the agreement entered into between the township and the Toronto and Scarborough Ry., Light and Power Co., the former owners of the road. It is claimed that the agreement, in part, provides for the construction and operation of track and cars on Danforth Rd., which has not been done.
