  37. O-Train South Project Schedule Update 36
  38. O-Train South Project Program Risks 37 • Safety Management During Construction • Construction safety incident • New safety issue surfaced during testing • Testing & Commissioning / Performance Testing • New design issue surfaced during testing • Emerging performance or reliability issue identified during testing • Readiness of System for Training Requirements • Rail system completed in time to supporting training • System changes minimized/eliminated to avoid retraining
  39. 38 • Regulatory Approvals / Emerging Requirements • Delivery of LVVR (recorder unit) delayed to September 2023 • New regulatory requirements triggering late design changes • Remaining Works / Level of Effort to Complete • Quantity of remaining works may be unachievable • Some deferred works being reviewed, e.g., Bayview Pedestrian Bridge • Unknown / unplanned impacts • Adjacent Developments • Overbuild of The Ottawa Hospital garage will require corridor access • Additional developments in close proximity to system are expected O-Train South Project Program Risks
  40. Testing & Commissioning
  41. Testing & Commissioning Some of the major milestones being tracked include the list below: • Vehicle dynamic testing • Vehicle final acceptance • Signalling and train control testing • Communications integration tests • Systemwide / performance testing • Training program oOperators, Controllers, Maintainers, Emergency Responders • Trial Running (21 days) 40
  42. Operations Centre Test Facility 41
  43. Trial Running (1 of 4) • The main objective is to validate readiness for passenger service and to confirm that the complete integrated system is operational and reliable. • The specific objectives are as follows: ovalidate the performance of the system infrastructure with operating and maintenance staff trained on the operation of the System Infrastructure and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) oexercise and validate the operating schedules and operational performance requirements oexercise and confirm the operating reliability of the subsystems simulated under various operating conditions (regular and emergency) 42
  44. Trial Running (2 of 4) • Minimum of 21-day activity in the program including a full regular scheduled service on the full line for a 14-day period. • TransitNEXT shall achieve the Service Reliability Standard outlined in Schedule 15-2, Part 1, Article 3.5 wherein the 98.5 per cent on-time performance must be achieved over a 14-day period within the 21-day Trial Running period. • System Integrator Verifier (Ricardo Rail) has been tasked to provide independent oversight of the Trial Running process. • Trial Running Reporting: o Daily summary of performance reports to Council oTechnical briefing at end of Trial Running to provide overall results 43
  45. Trial Running (3 of 4) • Monitoring teams in place validate key operation and maintenance activities that will underpin the overall performance: • Safety critical / GO No-Go criteria • Morning launch and evening reduction • Overnight cleaning and preparation of trains • Maintenance activities and maintenance performance • Contract reporting and daily performance reports • Operational performance / headway adherence • Availability of operations and maintenance staff 44
  46. Trial Running (4 of 4) • Draft template for reporting to City Council (under development) 45
  47. Preparation for Operations
  48. 47 OC Transpo Training Highly integrated program coordinated between OC Transpo, the Rail Construction Program (RCP) and TransitNEXT. TransitNext is developing a training curriculum materials based on the approved system to ensure that all staff are ready for operations. Train-the-trainer approach will be used. New roles including Diesel Rail Controller and Diesel Rail Operators. Track and vehicles are available to permit on job training to commence soon until Trial Running. Training is being provided in both in-class and on the job (OJT).
  49. Emergency Responder Training is being delivered using a progressive building block approach. TransitNEXT will train City instructors as follows: • Emergency Responder Tabletop Exercises (February – May 2023) • In-class training of the Trillium Line system, systems and equipment (May 2023) • Practical training, including site visits and familiarization sessions (June/July 2023) 48 Emergency Responder Training
  50. 49 Tabletop Exercises To date the following Emergency Responder Tabletop Exercises were completed 1. Person of Interest (February 9) 2. Suspicious Package (March 2) 3. Train-Human contact /Barricaded Person with Weapon (Apr 11) 4. Fire/Casualty Incident – Airport Station (May 25) A full-scale exercise is tentatively scheduled for September 2023 and will include City of Ottawa and Airport Emergency Responders who will jointly respond to a potential evacuation incident at the Airport Station / elevated guideway.
  51. Safety and Security Assurance A rigorous system safety and security assurance process to certify that all elements of the new expanded system are safe for operations. Assurance approach is guided by systems engineering and the CENELEC EN standards that dictate activities based on project phase. System acceptance is achieved when risks are mitigated to an acceptable level and evidence is provided to demonstrate that the system is safe. The City is overseeing all aspects of the assurance certification process through a joint team of City staff, the City’s Owners Engineer, and an Independent Safety Auditor (SENER). The auditor will confirm that TransitNEXT’s approach to system safety and assurance is sound, and that it has fulfilled compliance with all safety requirements throughout each project phase. TransitNEXT has also engaged an Independent Safety Assessor (Atkins Global) to assess their activities. 50

  53. Trillium Line Regulatory Approvals O-Train Lines 2 and 4 make up a federally-regulated railway, which requires a series of approvals prior to start-up from the Canadian TransportationAgency (CTA) and Transport Canada (TC). The major project milestones include a final amendment to the Certificate of Fitness and approval of the rulebooks and the submission of the Notice of Change of Operations to reflect the new system and operations.

  60. Interim bus route changes – Fall 2023 • Bus routes will be changed to make new connections at Limebank Station when O-Train Line 2 opens • Route 74 will be extended to Limebank Station (now ends at Nepean Woods Station) • Routes 99, 198, 278, 299 will make connections at Limebank Station and will continue to serve all current customers • Routes 93, 99, 299 will continue to serve Leitrim Station • Route 97 will continue to serve the airport • Route 197 will make a connection at Uplands Station • No changes to bus routes further north 59
  61. Parallel bus service through winter 2023-24 • The current Line 2 replacement buses will continue to operate between Bayview and South Keys stations, serving all stations • Route 99 will continue to operate between Hurdman and Barrhaven Centre stations, serving South Keys, Leitrim, and Nepean Woods, with a new stop at Limebank • Route 97 will continue to operate between Hurdman Station and the airport • These backup services are expected to be removed in Q1-Q2 of 2024 60
  62. 61
  63. Spring 2024 bus route changes • After the initial operation of Lines 2 and 4, everyday parallel bus service can be pared back and routes can be revised to focus on O-Train stations • Staff will develop proposals for bus route changes • Consultation with Councillors, customers, and stakeholders through the current Bus Route Review process • Customer touchpoints through the rest of 2023 • Any policy recommendations to Transit Commission and Council later in 2023 • Individual route changes to be agreed with ward Councillors 62
