Walters has been selected to supply and install structural steel, Open Web Steel Joists (OWSJ) and deck for 16 stations for Ottawa Light Rail Transit, concourse, service rooms, bus operator buildings, and platform canopies. Walters scope includes five stations for the East line expansion and 11 stations for the West line expansion.
The Stage 2 Confederation Line extension will add approximately 27 kilometres of new rail and 16 new stations to the O-Train network. The LRT extensions are expected to take approximately 14,000 cars off the road, which will help relieve traffic congestion during peak hours and reduce carbon emissions by 155 tons over 25 years. Once complete, the new stations will bring 70% of Ottawa residents within five km. of rail transit.
Fabricate and install structural steel for five stations. The project includes multiple coatings and Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel (AESS).
Fluid schedules, difficult site access, various locations to be serviced simultaneously, involving different designers for different stations, although the scope appears identical.
