LRT target route into west still years away and relies on funding coming through

By Brian Dryden, Ottawa Community News, December 12, 2017

Why light rail transit will completely bypass the high-tech corridor in Kanata North where thousands of people work in the west end of Ottawa and why a LRT station is planned near the Canadian Tire Centre that may cease to exist in the not too distant future were among the issues raised by residents at an open house into the city’s preferred LRT route into Kanata that is still more than a decade away from becoming reality.

City representatives — both staff and councillors for Kanata and Stittsville — and staff of companies involved in the planning process for the eventual LRT expansion into Kanata attended a public open house and question and answer session at the Kanata Recreation Complex Dec. 7 to explain the rational for the route that now appears to be the preferred way to hook up the western end of Ottawa to the city’s new light rail transit system.
