Stage 2 Light Rail Transit (LRT) O-Train South Extension Project - Notice of Construction Acceleration Efforts

As part of the Stage 2 O-Train South Extension project, TransitNEXT will be increasing work hours and days at various locations across the project to maximize the 2021 construction season.


Additional staff are being deployed across the project in addition to one or both of the following schedule recovery measures, depending on the site:

  • The addition of a second shift, for two, ten-hour shifts; and,
  • Weekend work.

Starting in the next few weeks and extending over the summer/fall construction period.


To maximize the 2021 construction season and accelerate timelines where possible.


Please see the following table.

Please note that this is not intended to provide an exhaustive list of sites where nighttime work will take place. Short-term nightwork may be required at other sites when the scheduled activity makes it necessary. In cases of nighttime work, an individual public notice will be issued to outline dates and impacts.

Anticipated Impacts

  • Sites with a double shift will have work starting at 7 am and finishing at 3 am. In these cases, efforts will be made to divert light from residences.
  • Noise will be intermittent and is expected to be within the limit set in the Project Agreement and Noise By-law exemption permits.
  • Both light and noise will naturally diminish with increased separation from the construction activity. In some locations, light and noise may be naturally attenuated by physical features.
