The Stage 2 Confederation Line extension will expand the initial Stage 1 Confederation Line farther east to Trim Road and farther west to Baseline Road and Moodie Drive, adding 28 kilometers of rail, 16 stations, and a maintenance and storage facility.
Following the expansion’s completion, the Confederation Line will consist of 29 stations spanning a distance of 40 kilometers. Thales noted that the completed project aims to take 780,000 annual rush-hour bus trips off the road and move upwards of 24,000 customers per hour.
Thales said its contribution to the Stage 2 O-Train Confederation Line extension project—it was the train control technology of choice for Stage 1—consists of “integrating control units onboard each train, the installation of guideway equipment, including zone controllers, as well as commissioning the system to be safely integrated within Stage 1 operations.”
“The Stage 2 O-Train Confederation Line Extension project allows Thales to continue to play an important role in providing a world-class transit system to Canada’s national capital,” said Dominique Gaiardo, VP, Managing Director, Thales’ urban rail signaling business. “Continuing our work from Stage 1, our local, made-in-Ontario SelTrac CBTC technology is a key part of the O-Train system, bringing to life the next important phase of Ottawa’s long-term transit vision, providing passengers a faster, safer and greener way to commute.”
