  1. It's hard to tell from geoOttawa, but I'm wondering if they've cheaped out on the pedestrian plaza outside of the entrance that was shown in the renderings. The area between both entrances looks empty. The supposed new underpass on the north side of the station isn't shown. I think this dates back to the original EA which highlighted an issue with the station being on a curve, which starts just south of the bridge. There's no way for a southbound train on the west track to continue south to Leitrim with the configuration shown. The track only leads to the Airport. Presu
  2. No idea when it would be built, hasn't gone to study yet. But it would connect the Baseline BRT to the rest of Heron, down Walkley, and then up to Elmvale following the Route 46, and also Industrial (where OC Transpo's garages are).
  3. It looks like the new draft official plan includes the at-grade transitway in some of its maps, e.g. in the Alta Vista secondary plan. https://engage.ottawa.ca/the-new-official-plan
  4. I don't think there's anything newer than the TMP.
  5. From the last construction update email that they sent out (on September 28):
  6. That's exciting! Thank you for sending in the emails. And done!
  7. I don't know if this was a change for the new vehicles, or if it's being retroactively applied to all of the older vehicles as well but 1138 has a panel above the door to cover the door electronics. Previously the electronics were completely exposed, not that I recall this necessarily being a problem. In any case; a good change.
  8. I could see Tenth Line being useful if that interchange ever saw proper development, but I have no idea how likely that is. OTC seems useless from the get-go.
  9. I'm not sure what's with the big difference for Blair to Trim (the weird curves east of Blair maybe?) but for the other's it's undoubtedly because of the flyover and switching required.
  10. To add a bit more confusion into the mix, here is a relevant excerpt of the project agreement:
  11. I think it's worth bringing this nice graph up again (from here ) I have to say I'm still fairly skeptical about these times, but I'm impressed with how fast they've been responding to you.
  12. I personally like the idea of running it along Queen Elizabeth, but Dodge the inevitable resistance from the Glebe in favour of a potential compromise from the NCC? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  13. Here it is on a map. You might be thinking of Fallowfield.
  14. Glad to see the Heron/Walkley BRT added! (although in the TMP it continues to Elmvale, and I think it's unlikely we'll ever see a Park and Ride at Walkley and Conroy)
  15. This isn't a matter of lowest bidder, it was all part of the original design. The track north of South Keys has a limited capacity meaning that trains can only run every 12 minutes. If trains continued on to the Airport, then that means there wouldn't be one headed to Riverside South for another 12 minutes and there'd be a 24 minute gap. With that said, South Keys will have an island platform so the transfer from the airport train to the main line train (or vice versa) is done by simply walking across one platform.
