City hall blog: Decision comes on LRT contract ‘readiness’ clause
Ottawa Citizen

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, April 19, 2017

The Rideau Transit Group needs to hit a June 1, 2017 deadline to have LRT work done downtown, but we might not find out before then if the city has acted on the contract obligation.

The project agreement between RTG and the city includes a clause describing a “2017 readiness date.

”It essentially calls on the city to make an opinion on whether or not downtown work will be complete by June 1. When RTG receives a notice from the city about the possibility of falling behind that deadline, the consortium needs to respond within five days to provide the reasons for the delay and a game plan to reduce the delay.
