Construction progress continues on the $2.1 billion Confederation Line project with three downtown stations at varying stages of completion. The City of Ottawa has provided these images to Ottawa Construction News.
The city reported in late January that the Lyon Station was 66 per cent complete, while Parliament Station is slightly more than 12 per cent complete and the Rideau Station was 9.9 per cent complete. Crews operating three road headers were continuing the tunnel digging and station excavation progress.
In other developments, as the city unveiled a mock-up of the Alstrom Citadis Spirtlight rail vehicle at Lansdowne Park’s Aberdeen Pavilion, other upcoming activities include:
- Preparatory works for the Booth St. bridge will begin.
- The roof of the Belfast Yard shed is scheduled for completion mid-winter.
- Lyon Station west entrance excavation is anticipated to begin late winter.
- Parliament Station utility relocation works on Queen St. are scheduled this winter.
- Parliament Station west entrance is scheduled to begin late winter.
Meanwhile, work neared completion in late January on the Coventry pedestrian foot-bridge, including installing the ceiling’s plumbing conduits, roof vent installation, and concrete pouring and panel installation of stairs.
