An alternate location for a proposed LRT maintenance and storage facility west of Moodie Drive will cost up to $15 million more, but the city says it’s not throwaway money since the work will grease the wheels for the future Kanata connection.

As part of the Stage 2 rail expansion, the city has been studying how trains will operate around the new terminus at Moodie Drive in 2023. The preferred location for the station is on the east side of Moodie Drive and until recently the city was leaning toward building a light maintenance and storage facility just north off Moodie Drive.
