The consortium behind Ottawa's new LRT system has rung in the new year by applying for an extension to determine when the keys to the Confederation Line will be handed to the city.
The Rideau Transit Group (RTG) was supposed to tell the city today — Jan. 2 — when it's expected to hand over the new $2.1-billion light rail line.
Instead, RTG asked the city for a one-day extension.
RTG was originally supposed to deliver the LRT system to the city last May, but in February the city announced the date would be pushed back six months to Nov. 2.https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/ottawa-lrt-rtg-handover-deadline-extension-1.4963798
