The Taggart Construction team is proud to be part of the largest construction project in Ottawa’s contemporary history. The Confederation Line is a design-build joint venture involving the Rideau Transit Group, ACS Infrastructure Canada, Dragados Canada, EllisDon and SNC-Lavalin. It marks yet another Taggart Construction contribution to Ottawa’s new mass transit system and to our extensive portfolio of mass transit projects.
The Confederation Line is the start of a completely integrated transit network that will accommodate 18,000 passengers per hour in two directions, helping reduce traffic congestion and gridlock in Ottawa’s downtown core and on other major roadways. The first phase of the Confederation Line extends from Tunney’s Pasture to Blair Road — a total distance of 12.5 kilometres — and includes a 2.5-kilometre downtown tunnel.
