Ottawa Light Rail Expansion

As part of an ambitious plan to develop a world-class transportation system in the Canadian capital, the City of Ottawa is building a new electric light rail transit (LRT) system. STV is leading a joint venture to provide analysis, engineering, procurement and other services for the groundbreaking design-build-finance-maintain project.The end result will transform Ottawa's exclusive, fully built-out bus rapid transit system into an LRT network; the first such conversion of its kind in North America.

For Stage 1, the joint venture provided preliminary engineering and program management services for the initial segment known as the Confederation Line. Stage 2 includes the extension of three existing LRT routes -- east and west along the Confederation Line, and south along the Trillium Line -- totaling 30 kilometers (18.64 miles) of new rail and 19 new stations.
