  1. This is cool and all, but honestly are there studies or something that actually shows a demand for a central library, especially in 2021 and the post-covid world?

    Out of the million people living in Ottawa, how many actually go to libraries nowdays? I'm not sure it's high enough to justify this new building, unless they are planning on closing smaller libraries? 

  2. Lincoln Fields mystery question for you all: Does anyone know why GeoOttawa have the following layout for the transitway roads at lincoln fields? Is this some kind of ancient Lincoln Fields rejected station layout? Or is this the updated Stage 2 bus loop layout?image.png.88f077048d217d226f6d70be31b46234.png

    I honestly don't understand, why do we need an BRT on March Rd? Never once have I taken a 93 (63, 64, 266) during peak periods and thought we need a BRT.

    Have you taken it recently? I used to take the 63/64 every day for work, and it was the worst nightmare. It would take around 20minutes to go from Solandt and down Teron road (a stretch that takes 3minutes in car non-peak hour). It is also crazy hard to go north passed Terry Fox, due to the crazy detour the 63 and 64 take after Innovation, snaking through all the tiny suburban streets up in Morgan's Grant and Shirley's brook. Klondike Station alone would make bussing downtown a feasible option for everyone in Kanata North. A transitway down March would cut at least 20minutes of travel time from Maxwell Bridge to Eagleson

  4. Did ya'll know about the first OC-transpo terminal built in Kanata? Located next to Kanata Town Center, this was the first stretch of Transitway built in Kanata. It was abandoned after the construction of Terry Fox station north of the Highway.

    It is now used by Ontario Northland as a tiny/useless province-bus service terminal.

  5. I don't understand how this part of Line 2 is even going to work anymore. According to the new tracks, any train going South from Bayview will have to wait between Mooney and Walkley until any North-bound trains from Limebank have gone through Walkley + Greenboro + South Keys + the entire length of track up to Leitrim! This is insane...

    Is there actually a plan to build housing there as there does not seem to be much room available? 

    In the new affordable housing plan http://ottwatch.ca/meetings/file/579067, they raise the possibility of demolishing Bob Mcquarrie to build apartment towers (part of which would fall under the affordable housing project). There's no confirmations of funding or designs, but the land study and analysis is complete. Much the same for the Tom Brown arena near Bayview, also suggested for demolition.
