Prime Minister Justin Trudeau formally announced $1.15 billion in funding for LRT Stage 2 in Ottawa, which includes extending light rail to Trim Road and the airport.
The Stage 2 project will be built in phases, with the airport line and spur being built first and due to open in 2021. The east line line will follow, with a planned 2022 opening.
The west extension to Moodie Drive will open the following year. Orléans MP Andrew Leslie had confirmed March's federal budget included funding for Phase 2 of the LRT project at a breakfast he hosted on April 3.https://www.ottawacommunitynews.com/news-story/7375792-stage-2-rail-funding-is-a-go-trudeau/
