Light rail vehicles will be moving through Kitchener at their operational speed next week.
GrandLinq says vehicles will be tested between the Erb/Caroline intersection in Waterloo and the Fairway LRT stop on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The vehicles will be running under their own power, reaching speeds of up to 50 km/h along streets and 70 km/h when the route branches off from the road network.
The testing will take place between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. It could cause brief traffic delays at intersections and pedestrian crossings along the route.
