City to study bringing LRT and rail-grade separation to Barrhaven

By Mike Vlasveld, 1310 News, September 26, 2018

The City of Ottawa will study how to convert bus rapid transit to light-rail transit to serve Barrhaven commuters.

The environmental assessment for this project is being combined with another already underway for rail grade-separations in Barrhaven, due to overlapping geographic areas.

The study will determine how best to extend the O-Train Confederation Line 10 km south from Baseline Station to Barrhaven Town Centre, with eight additional stations.

The study will also examine options for implementing light rail in stages and incorporating transit amenities, such as a maintenance and storage facility, park-and-ride lots and cycling and pedestrian infrastructure.
