Heavy traffic stalling job growth in Kanata, tech firms complain

By Laura Osman, CBC News Ottawa, January 17, 2019

Workers trying to make their way down March Road to the Kanata North Technology Park often find themselves stuck in traffic stretching all the way to the Queensway, and there are no speedy public transit alternatives.

(...)Redesigning March Road and overhauling transit service to the business park are costly options, but they'll likely both be part of the conversation when city council debates the city's transportation master plan later this year.
