The first phase of the O-Train's Confederation Line, which was more than a year late opening and has serious reliability issues that have left city officials and transit riders fuming, has won a prestigious award for excellence in engineering.

The American Council of Engineering Companies has awarded the engineering companies involved in the project a Diamond Award for excellence in engineering.

The companies -- AECOM, McMillen Jabobs Associates, Morrison Hershfield, and STV -- will be celebrated at the 53rd annual Engineering Excellence Awards.

The judges included engineers as well as experts in government and academia, and they focused on things like uniqueness, originality, and technical innovation.
