Ottawa's mayor says construction on the first phase of the city's light rail system is on time and on budget.

Mayor Jim Watson and Amarjeet Sohi, federal minister of Infrastructure and Communities, were among those touring the future Tremblay Station on Wednesday morning.

The station sits next to the Ottawa train station on Tremblay Road, just east of downtown Ottawa.

The Confederation Line, which is still being constructed, will run from Blair Road to Tunney's Pasture.
