Ottawa LRT inspection reports paint picture of a work in progress
Ottawa Citizen

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, August 29, 2017

Dozens of inspection reports documenting deficiencies, such as bad welds and crummy workmanship, illustrate the quality control in effect during the construction of Ottawa’s LRT line.

The Citizen reviewed 64 “non-conformance” reports produced during audits of construction along the LRT line. The city sent the documents to researcher Ken Rubin after he made an access-to-information request for all reports produced in 2015 and 2016. He is still seeking more records.

Such reports are common in the construction industry as builders’ work is inspected to ensure its quality.
