This is from the previous estimate of the completion done at 50% completion at the January 2014 Expo board meeting:
Substantial completion (current estimate [@ 50% completion]): July 10, 2015
Length of testing and start-up: 150 days
ROD (current estimate [@ 50% completion]): December 7, 2015
Contingency (current estimate [@ 50% completion]): 167 days
ROD with contingency (current estimate [@ 50% completion]): May 22, 2016
Old contingency (estimate at project start): 334 days
Old ROD date with contingency (estimate at project start): November 5, 2016
Next estimate for contingency and ROD with contingency: to be made at 90% completion (in the board meeting agenda to be posted online on March 30, 2015)
Note that the project is currently 100% on schedule @ 50% completion. That's why the contingency was exactly cut by half (by 50%) from 334 days to 167 days.
So, when the project was 50% complete in early 2014, it was fully on schedule. Then, things started slipping. It looks like the last 10% will take a year to complete and they will use all the remaining contingency they have (167 days) and the line will open around May 2016. It's unbelievable how the contractor slammed on the brakes. I wonder what the reason is.
So, the project seems to be roughly 6 months behind schedule but we will hear the official word in two weeks.
Metro Construction Committee estimates substantial completion in Nov. 2015 per the meeting this week.
