Community demands traffic study before Civic hospital approval

By Laura Osman, CBC News Ottawa, May 19, 2018

Communities around the future Ottawa Hospital Civic campus are crying out for someone to study the impact all that traffic will have on the neighbourhood — before the project wins city council approval.

The Civic campus relocation to 930 Carling Ave. and 520 Preston St. will be up for debate by the city's planning committee Tuesday.

So far there has been no traffic study done, even though the local community association has been asking for one for years. And currently, the most direct route to the proposed site cuts through a residential neighbourhood.
