Ottawa Centre Liberal candidate Catherine McKenna said if she’s elected, she will partner with the City of Ottawa and the province of Ontario to make the Prince of Wales Bridge accessible to pedestrians and cyclists.

McKenna estimates that the project would cost about $10 million, but argues that the project would make the abandoned railway bridge safe, as well as offer a new option for people crossing between Ottawa and Gatineau.

The derelict bridge is owned by the City of Ottawa and crosses the Ottawa River through Lemieux Island into Gatineau.
