No Boarding Light Rail Until 2019

The Confederation Line LRT likely won’t be ready for customers by the end of 2018.

At City hall today, Transportation general manager John Manconi told the finance and economic development committee he received a call from Rideau Transit Group late Friday suggesting a new schedule of completion.

Instead of a November 2nd handover to the city, RTG has now suggested it can deliver it on Nov. 30.

After that date testing would need to happen, so the city doesn’t think the LRT system would open until the first quarter of 2019.

Rideau Station is the one major area of construction that continues to be behind.
