The city’s LRT contractors will face no penalty for missing the deadline to clear up downtown for Canada Day.
When thousands of Canadians descended on Ottawa for Canada Day earlier this month, the hoarding constructions signs and road closures downtown were all supposed to be gone.
The aboveground work on the $2.1-billion Confederation Line LRT was supposed to be wrapped up in time for Canada Day. As originally planned, visitors would be walking along Queen and Rideau streets downtown unencumbered by all the work taking place underneath their feet.http://www.metronews.ca/news/ottawa/2017/07/11/no-penalties-to-lrt-contractor-for-missing-canada-day-target0.html
