Transit Project Assessment Process – Western Extension of the Confederation Line Light Rail Transit
The City of Ottawa is proposing to expand the City’s Confederation Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) network, currently under construction, to the east, west and southwest regions of the City. The Western Extension of the Confederation Line Light Rail Transit includes extending the Confederation Line further west from Tunney’s Pasture Station to Baseline and Bayshore Stations as well as a developing a Maintenance and Storage Facility in the Nepean-Woodroffe corridor, south of Norice Avenue. The purpose of this project is to provide a higher level of transit service to growing communities in the west and southwest of the city, a need identified in the City of Ottawa’s 2013 Transportation Master Plan.
The Plan will:
– Add 13 kilometres of rail and 10 LRT stations to the City’s overall transit network at Westboro, Dominion, Cleary, New Orchard, Lincoln Fields, Iris, Baseline, Queensview, Pinecrest, and Bayshore.
– Connect directly to the West Transitway and the Southwest Transitway to facilitate connections to the communities of Kanata and Barrhaven.
