    Your kidding but there is actually one made already 😂(if your so inclined it’s like one page back on the thread) To be fair though it was made when seeing the trains was rarer so

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    Article from June 2, 2017 http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/ottawa-releases-finalist-bidders-for-next-stage-of-light-rail Quote: “Other than that, Kanellakos’s memo said the next phase of rail is moving ahead ticketyboo, with funding deals progressing and approvals from the upper governments coming in on schedule.” Also, the consortium to build the Stage 2 of the confederation line will be decided in Q3 or Q4 of 2018, for construction to start asap in 2019. Another article for Feb. 2017 http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/ottawa-lrt-plan-light-rail-stage-2-blueprint-passes-first-test-with-thoughts-turning-to-stage-3 Quote: ”The city-funded part of the Stage 2 rail expansion will cost $3 billion, split equally between the city, province and feds, and be fully operational by 2023. The city expects the bonus extensions to Trim Road ($160 million) and the Ottawa International Airport ($155 million) will be covered by the provincial and federal governments.” It is so extremely unlikely that stage 2 would not go ahead, given that the money has been committed to by the Convervatives as well ” Projected Stage 2 timeline: Begin environmental assessment for Moodie Drive extension: March 2017 Release Confederation Line request for qualifications: March 2017 Release Trillium Line request for qualifications: March/April 2017 Secure funding commitments: May 2017 Release Confederation Line request for proposals: June 2017 Release Trillium Line request for proposals: Q2/Q3 2017 Finalize contribution agreements: Q1 2018 Contract award: Q2 2018 Construction commences: Q3 2018 Revenue service Trillium Line: 2021 Revenue service Confederation Line East: 2022 Revenue service Confederation Line West: 2023” ” *Note that the 2018 schedule has shifted a Q or 2 as the delay of the opening of the confederation line, and to give more time for the consortiums to finalize their RFPs. -Charlie

    It is fully funded and approved, minus the new Limebank extension (sort of). -Charlie
