Hamilton-Niagara Falls double-tracking.—The double track between Hamilton and Niagara Falls, Ont., has been finished with the exception of the bridgework at Twelve Mile creek, and over the Welland canal. The Twelve Mile creek is situated about two miles east of St. Catharines, and work on this was somewhat delayed owing to a fire at the tool house of the bridge building company, which caused some $10,000 damage. The track is laid up to the bridge, and pending its completion the single track is being used between St. Catharines and Merritton. The Welland canal will be crossed by the double-track swing bridge. A temporary single track bridge has been erected, and is in use for east bound traffic, west bound trains going through the tunnel under the canal. When the bridge is completed the tunnel will be abandoned, except in cases of emergency. These two bridges are expected to be completed early in the spring. (Dec., 1902, pg. 405.)
