The committee received a status update on the O-Train Confederation Line project. Progress has been made on fleet availability with a recent milestone of 20 trains running simultaneously across the alignment and occupancy permits issued for nine stations. The City continues to monitor critical elements of the testing and commissioning program needed to achieve Revenue Service Availability (RSA).


Important points from the update:
  • All 34 LRV vehicles have been built and entire fleet is undergoing testing.
  • City has taken occupancy of 9 out of 13 stations. Still awaiting Rideau, Parliament, Lyon and St. Laurent.
  • Testing has been completed with 20 LRV vehicles running simultaneously along the line.
  • Stress testing of the bus loop at Tunney's Pasture occured this past Sunday and a similar test at Blair will occur in the not too distant future.
