Ottawa – On Saturday, December 5, and Sunday, December 6, O-Train Line 1 will temporarily close between Hurdman and Blair stations and be replaced by frequent R1 bus service. Train service will continue to run between Tunney’s Pasture and Hurdman stations on both days.
The entrance grilles and doors will be closed at Tremblay, St-Laurent, and Cyrville stations. All other stations will remain open, including Blair Station in order to allow customers to reach R1 bus service from the local platforms, the pedestrian bridge and Gloucester Centre. Staff will be present at Line 1 stations to help direct customers.
These closures will enable Rideau Transit Group the opportunity to conduct the final installation, commissioning and testing activities associated with the new switch heaters, which will ultimately improve the performance of the system.
