City of Ottawa, RTG sign agreement for Stage 2 LRT

The City of Ottawa has exercised the option, under the current contract, to utilize equipment continuity, knowledge, and cost efficiencies, and has signed a fixed-price variation agreement worth $349 million with Rideau Transit Group Partnership (RTG) for the rolling stock and onboard equipment for Stage 2 of the Confederation Line. This contract is part of the Memorandum of Understanding ratified by RTG with the City of Ottawa on March 24th, 2017 for a portion of Stage 2 of the Confederation Line for $492 million.

RTG is a consortium composed of SNC-Lavalin, ACS Infrastructure Canada Inc., and EllisDon. The consortium is currently delivering Stage 1 of the Confederation Line in Ottawa and will extend its existing contractual arrangement for Stage 2.

“We are proud that the City of Ottawa has extended our scope to ensure the growth of the project and has entrusted us to maintain the Confederation Line’s core assets until 2048,” said Chantal Sorel, managing director of capital at SNC-Lavalin.

Signed contracts for the project components and services that will be delivered by SNC-Lavalin and its partners include:

  • delivery of 38 additional light rail vehicles assembled at Belfast Yard Maintenance, Administration, and Storage Facility (MSF); and
  • assistance to the city during their procurement process.

The remaining scope of work elements to be finalized includes:

  • expansion of Belfast Yard MSF;
  • maintenance of the additional vehicles and facilities throughout their lifecycle;
  • civil maintenance on the Confederation Line extensions;
  • supply of specialized communications equipment; and
  • interface and design management for maintainability.

The Stage 2 work began in May with the provision of procurement support services and preparatory works at Belfast Yard MSF. That expansion is slated for completion at the end of 2018.
