Confederation Line Extension

The Confederation Line extension project involves designing, constructing, and financing 27.5 kilometers of infrastructure for Ottawa’s light-rail transit (LRT) system. This expansion aims to extend the existing Confederation Line west and east, enhancing the city’s public transportation network. The project includes the construction of 4 kilometers of rail in cut-and-cover tunnels, 20 engineering structures, 16 stations (including one underground and one elevated station), and a maintenance center.
