  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. To add a bit more confusion into the mix, here is a relevant excerpt of the project agreement:
  5. 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.
  6. 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)_/¯
  7. Here it is on a map. You might be thinking of Fallowfield.
  8. 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)
  9. 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.
  10. In my opinion, I don't see the value added of a wiki along with the existing site(s) and its pages. Regardless of duplication of other sites and wikis, there's potential for duplication between a wiki here and the site itself. Anything that's missing from the site now could still be user-contributed just like a number of pages already are. If a wiki is added, I think it should take the place of the main site since that's where all the content is anyway. But I imagine that would be a big undertaking and of course I don't know how Shane feels about that.
  11. I can't think of any current active plan (maybe someone else can), but it is in the TMP. It would dip south below those houses before going back up to connect to Limebank though.

    Stage 3 Kanata

    A new bus loop would be built between the station and the 417. A new pedestrian overpass would be built to connect to the parking lots from what I would imagine would be the "fare-paid zone" by the bus loop.
  13. It's in RTG's best interests to get this done ASAP of course. Based on the description of the work being done, I'm sure it would otherwise have been done during overnight maintenance periods, but that likely would have spanned several months.
  14. I think this was one of the last things that was formally added to the project, though it was proposed early on. The freight crossing is just part of an agreement between CP and the City and I don't think it has anything to do with CP's current stakes in the Ottawa region. Definitely nothing to do with CN and their plan to abandon. The agreement was mostly just for "ensurance" that if CP ever had business to conduct in this region again, they'd still have some access to the corridor. That's very unlikely to happen though of course.
