The continued focus is on remaining testing and commissioning activities and operational running on the alignment.
Activities Across the Alignment – Construction Update
Occupancy permits have been issued for all stations. Final clean-up at all stations is underway.
All 34 trains have been certified and are operating on the guideway, including end-to-end runs, as part of the testing program. DPICO tests (tests done to confirm that all equipment on the train has been installed in accordance with the specification and design) have been completed and all 34 trains are CBTC (train control system) qualified. Some tests remain to be completed on the vehicles, and work continues to resolve other issues and improve vehicle reliability.
Commissioning of the communications systems at the Transit Operation Control Centre (TOCC) is ongoing. Power system testing, requiring multiple vehicles travelling the length of the system, is complete. Crews are running tests similar to the Line 1 operating schedule with peak and off peak frequencies. OC Transpo’s Electric Rail Operator training is ongoing.
