As of Thursday, the O-Train is back on track.
After major improvements to the track infrastructure, signal system, trains and the Rideau River Bridge that saw the O-Train closed since mid June, the service will resume, offering a quieter and smoother ride, the city said yesterday.
The improvements are expected to extend trains’ life expectancy and improve performance at the same time. It will also mean lower operating and maintenance costs resulting from reduced wear and tear on the trains.
Improvements to the Walkley and Riverside overpasses and the Dow’s Lake tunnel, as well as the installation of new solar-powered, credit card-enabled ticket vending machines were also completed during this time.
