Tent City: McKenney/Leiper statement

In the wake of a tent fire last week the NCC and Emergency services have made the decision to remove the tent city behind Bayview Station. Emergency and Protective Services (which oversees fire and paramedic services) and Ottawa Police consider that the site poses a threat both to residents there as well as to emergency responders. While we do not agree with the removal, it is no longer in our power to stop it. This is a tragedy on many levels.

UPDATE: NEW DAY Public Meeting - OC Transpo buses on Spencer Street - December 19, 2019

As part of the LRT launch, OC Transpo rerouted the 14 so it would connect directly to Tunney's Pasture Station. This resulted in a route 53 to take care of the Parkdale south to Carlington route the 14 used to run. On its return north, the 53 would also connect directly to Tunney's Pasture. OC Transpo determined that coming back from Tunney's Pasture, the right hand turn onto Parkdale was impossible due to the turning radius. Therefore the routes went south down Holland, turning left on Spencer and eventually turning right to return to Parkdale.

Strategic Road Safety Plan: my first review

Today, the City released its Strategic Road Safety Action Plan. It’s a weighty document that outlines the measures it proposes Council adopt to reduce the number of collisions resulting in fatalities and major injuries (FMIs). On top of around $27.5 million being spent on safety measures today, they propose putting an additional $4 million into a variety of initiatives and projects to reduce FMIs.

Stage 2 LRT update

The City's rail construction office has provided us with its latest Stage 2 update. Click the PDFs below for updates on construction and tree removals. Last year, several trees were transplanted elsewhere in the surrounding area, but construction of the LRT under Byron Linear Park leads unfortunately to the rest being cut down as the builder gets ready to cut and cover the new rail tunnel.
