Stage 2 rail funding is a go: Trudeau

By Brier Dodge, Ottawa Community News, June 16, 2017

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.
