Ottawa will Build a Tunnel for Light Rail Project

The city of Ottawa in Canada has scrapped an existing plan to build a 3.2km tunnel for its light rail project, and approved a new plan that will keep the project under its C$2bn budget.

According to the revised plan, the tunnel will be built under Queen Street instead of Albert Street and it will be dug at a depth of 15-16m instead of 39-40m.
The tunnel will be part of a 12.5km light rail line thatwill run from Tunney’s Pasture, just west of downtown, to Blair station in the east.
The city is seeking proposal for the project by December of this year and will award a contract in December 2012; the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
