Ottawa's Confederation Line light rail project has racked up considerably more workplace safety orders than two other major transit projects in Ontario, despite having the shortest tunnel and smallest budget of the three.

Numbers provided by the Ministry of Labour show the Ottawa project has received 721 corrective orders since it began in March 2013, and has been under an additional 111 stop-work orders.
