ITE SW Ontario Section – May 2016 Meeting
May 12, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
We hope you can join us to welcome Darspreet Bhatti, P.Eng. presenting The ION Light Rail Transit (LRT) Project.
Darshpreet, Director, Rapid Transit for the Region of Waterloo, will be presenting an overview of the planning, procurement and construction associated with the ION LRT project along with some lessons learned from the process.
The Region of Waterloo rapid transit system will connect the three major urban centres of the Cities of Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo. In late 2014, construction began on ION LRT service between Fairview Park Mall in Kitchener and Conestoga Mall in Waterloo. Darshpreet will present an overview of the planning, procurement and construction associated with the ION LRT project. Darshpreet’s objective will be to share some lessons learned during these stages of the project. This presentation should be of an interest to consultant, municipal, and construction engineers as the City of London is completing the Environmental Assessment for its Rapid Transit initiative (“Shift”) with implementation starting in a few years.
