No new date for LRT opening

The mayor and city council have received an update on construction progress on the O-Train's Confederation Line, but there's no word when the line might open to riders.

In a memo, the city's manager of O-Train construction says Rideau Station still requires "significant work." Rideau Station is among several items that need to be completed before the Confederation Line can become fully operational; the city is also keeping a close eye on Parliament and all the west-end stations, as well as the ability to run multiple trains at the same time along the line.

Three weeks ago, it was announced that the LRT builder -- Rideau Transit Group -- would miss the November 2 deadline to hand possession of the system over to the city.
