Summary from Alectra regarding outages impacting Kirkendall
Alectra investigated the causes of the September 13, October 1 and November 1 outages that affected the Dundurn and Caroline Street; Longwood Road and Locke Street; and the King Street West and Aberdeen Avenue areas.
Most recent outages triggered by the following:
- The September 13 outage affecting the Dundurn to Caroline street area was a result of equipment failure in our underground system supplying the area.
- The outage on October 1 affecting King Street West to Aberdeen Avenue from Haddon Avenue South to Queen Street South. was a result of equipment failure from Hydro One owned equipment at a substation feeding Alectra’s grid. As of November 8, the repairs have been made.
- The overnight November 1 outage was due to severe weather. The wind storm-affected multiple municipalities in our service territory primarily from damaging winds. Alectra crews worked throughout the night and the power was restored in the morning.
Alectra will be implementing vegetation management on certain areas adjacent to our overhead system in Ward 1 in order to minimize future tree contacts as well as installing additional animal guards. The equipment repairs that were made on November 8 will also increase the reliability in the area going forward.

The project manager for the Churchill Park Phase 1 redevelopment gave the Ward 1 Office a tour of the improvements the City of Hamilton has made to the site. We apologise for the audio quality, while it was a beautiful day to be in the park, the wind was high
The conversion, tentatively scheduled for completion in fall 2019, is now planned for early Spring 2020. Details for the new timeline may be found here
In July 2019, the City of Hamilton became the first municipality in Ontario to implement a city-wide neighbourhood speed-limit reduction on local and minor collector roadways to 40 km/h and 30km/hr in school zones. This change to community streets is a fundamental step towards the City of Hamilton’s goal of Vision Zero; zero fatalities or serious injuries on roadways as well as our vision of being the best place to raise a child and age successfully.
