Kirkwall-Hamilton Project

Project Phase: Environmental Studies

Natural gas demand has increased across Ontario, Quebec, eastern Canada and the northeast United States. To meet that demand, Enbridge Gas is proposing to construct a new 48-inch diameter natural gas pipeline located within the City of Hamilton, generally paralleling our existing Dawn-Parkway natural gas transmission system.

(Note: As of Jan. 1, 2019, Union Gas and Enbridge Gas Distribution have amalgamated into one utility with the legal name Enbridge Gas Inc.)

A preferred route has been chosen for the project. Please view the route.

The proposed project will occur between our existing Kirkwall Valve Site, located northeast of the intersection of Safari Road and Valens Road and our Hamilton Valve Site, located east of Highway 6 and north of Carlisle Road.

Our proposed project is subject to Ontario Energy Board (OEB) approval. If approved, construction could begin as early as spring 2021 and be complete by the end of 2021.
