The city will get more time to respond to an order to reopen the Prince of Wales Bridge to rail traffic.

Earlier this year, the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) ordered the city to take the steps so the bridge could be put into service within 12 months or to go through the formal process of discontinuing the line, which includes putting the bridge up for sale.

The city had until this coming Monday to respond.

There are no city plans for the bridge in the short term, but in the long term it has talked about using the bridge to set up a rail link to Gatineau.
