Weekly LRT Update – City of Ottawa believes it will have keys to LRT before Canada Day

Still, no set date has been given as the $2.1-billion Confederation Line opening continues to be delayed.

The Rideau Transit Group has still not provided a completion date for Phase 1 of light rail transit in Ottawa, but the city believes it will get the keys before July 1.

The group is building the 12.5 km system that has been delayed by more than a year.

City of Ottawa General Manager of Transportation John Manconi delivered an update on LRT to the Finance and Economic Development Committee on Tuesday morning.

He said things are trending in the right direction. Nine of the 13 stations are ready for full operation, and Manconi said the other four stations are “days away.”

Manconi also said 29 of the 34 vehicles have been signed off by Thales, the company that provided the on-board communications system.

He confirmed RTG has until May 31 to provide a new handover date.
