The Red Hill Valley Parkway Inquiry (RHVPI) is ready to hear from those who where involved in an accident on the roadway.

It says anyone who was affected by a crash can make an application to be heard and that includes victims and their family members.

Those who have information or documentation can send an email to the inquiry over the website RHVPI.ca with their name, contact information and a brief description of their incident.

Earlier this month council for the inquiry said the process had become “slower and more complicated” than expected due to the coronavirus pandemic and a for historical documents.

So far, the inquiry has received about 74,000 documents from participants and other people who hold relevant technical information which is now being reviewed with the help of design experts, analyzing everything from asphalt composition to construction methods.

Meanwhile, lawyers representing a multi-million-dollar lawsuit against the city of Hamilton, alleging improper design and maintenance of the Parkway are still awaiting a judge to certify their class action.
