O-Train Confederation Line Project Update - October 2, 2018
The City of Ottawa today released a memo the city council received that details current progress on the O-Train Confederation Line construction. You can consult it below. The memo also features some pictures, to illustrate the progress made in the downtown stations in the past month.
Important notes from the memo are as follows:
- Major milestone reached on September 11, 2018 when a train completed the first end-to-end run by traveling between Tunney's Pasture to Blair Station.
- Train movement and testing has begun in the downtown tunnel.
- Automatic Train Operation is operating and in use on the eastern track. Expanding to the western tracks and tunnel sections soon.
- The city continues to monitor and track the project but there is currently no change from the update provided at FEDCO on September 10, 2018. As a result, no update to the Revenue Service Availability Date at this time.
