Mayors rule out Prince of Wales Bridge for transit link

By CBC News Ottawa, September 24, 2019

The Prince of Wales Bridge will never carry trains again, the mayors of Ottawa and Gatineau declared Tuesday, asking the next federal government to help them turn it into a cycling connection instead.

Mayor Jim Watson said Tuesday afternoon the bridge is not the right choice for a light rail transit connection.

"It would congest too much Bayview station and secondly Gatineau has been pursuing their LRT project and they too have ruled it out as a bridge that would be used for transit," he said.
