City taxpayers have been told countless times the Confederation LRT is on time and on budget, but the city is building on the $2.1-billion cost with add-on work.

The federal government announced this week $156 million for 57 transportation projects in the City of Ottawa. The projects include a bus loop at Tunney’s Pasture, a bike track on the Booth Street bridge, a crew room at Bayview station and customer waiting areas at stations. They are collectively eligible for $4.25 million in federal funding.
