Crosslinx Transit Solutions, a consortium contracted to construct the CAD5.3 billion (US$4.0 billion) Eglinton Crosstown light rail line in Toronto, has filed a notice of motion in in Ontario Superior Court alleging that Metrolinx, the contracting authority for the P3 project, and others have breached the terms of the construction agreement and that a number of events and circumstances delayed work. 

The light rail line was initially supposed to begin operating in fall 2020. Metrolinx added a year to the timeline about three years ago, expecting the delay to help mitigate disruption to local residents.

The authority has now issued a statement reaffirming its commitment to opening the line in the fall of 2021. It must respond to Crosslinx's filing with a statement of defence by 9 August.
