Winners of the Stage 2 rail contracts will be announced in the fourth quarter of 2018 after bidders asked for more time to complete their proposals, city staff have told council.

The contracts were scheduled to be awarded in the second quarter of 2018, but the groups bidding on two contracts asked for more time to work on their design and price submissions.

Chris Swail, the city’s director of O-Train planning, told council in a memo that construction of Stage 2 will still start in 2019.
