Confederation Line being put to the test

By Robyn Miller, CBC News Ottawa, July 29, 2019

A dozen consecutive days of testing for Ottawa's new light rail line is officially underway.

John Manconi, the city's general manager of transit services, said testing on the delayed Confederation Line started Monday morning.

On July 27, a memo from city staff said the city and an independent certifier had agreed that the substantial completion milestone had been met.

(...)If there's a major hitch in the next 12 days, however, the trial must start over. That means while it's feasible the trial could be completed as early as about Aug. 9, that will only happen if it all goes flawlessly.
