Council approves development at busy Hunt Club/Riverside, cycle pilot project at Andrew Haydon Park

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, April 10, 2019

A zoning change to allow a new mixed-use development near one of Ottawa’s worst intersections received the majority of council’s support Wednesday.

(...)The intersection of Hunt Club Road and Riverside Drive is usually near the top, or at the top, of an annual list of intersections with the most collisions. Under the city’s traffic volume scoring system, the intersection has a failing grade.

(...)The city hopes the Trillium Line O-Train expansion will get more suburban residents using public transit, rather than driving their cars. The rail line is scheduled to be extended to Riverside South by 2022.

(...)Drive-and-cycle pilot project approved for Andrew Haydon Park

The city will begin the rezoning process to allow a handful of car spaces in Andrew Haydon Park to be used as drive-and-cycle spots.

Council approved a pilot project that will reserve 10 park-and-cycle spots on a first come, first served basis between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
