  1. New renders obtained by Pat from the Stage 2 team sheds light on the overall layout. Along with a new mobility study that shows the station shifted slightly to the west. The original renderings and mobility study for comparison.
  2. Some more news on the new hospital. The Province is searching for a suitable site to build the new 600 bed facility in Hull or Aylmer and have launched a «avis d’intérêt ou demande d’information» to find a 150,000 square meter property. Old Gatineau has now been officially eliminated from the search, and so are any properties under 100,000 square meters. For comparison, the Hull Hospital is on a parcel of land of 73,000 square meters. The site has to be outside an industrial or agricultural zone. Hull Based on LeDroit's analysis, Robert-Guertin sits on 51,000 square meters of

  5. For sure those are new trains being tested. They have tp test them individually before coupling them for some more tests after x amount of time. Unless they can one day figure out the coupling/de-coupling. we won't see in service singles.

    They make reference to "access to an elevated boulevard". Presumably a future Trim overpass? Maybe they are counting an entrance that won't exist for another two decades. The plan has a green rectangle to the left of the platform where that future overpass entrance might be. That said, the 6 fare gates is consistent with a single entrance at this location.
  7. The new building will be more than just books and DVDs. Here's a list of features from the project's official website: https://inspire555.ca/library-archives-building/ ABOUT Set to open in late 2024, the OPL-LAC Joint Facility will become a landmark destination built on the shared values of the partner institutions. The facility will deliver a rich customer experience through Ottawa Public Library’s Central Library and Library and Archives Canada’s public services, exhibitions and events, which showcase Canada’s heritage. The joint programming and services will make this a tru
  8. Though now, it seems the Feds will end up funding the Airport's contribution, which is understandable. Developers are funding 50% of the extension from Bowesville to Limebank, with the Province funding the other 50%. I imagine developers proposing new towers at Bayshore and Blair will fund their own connections to the respective stations. The City also seems to expect Brigil will eventually fund the Trim pedestrian bridge extension to the north side of the 174.
  9. A new 600 bed hospital will be built before the end of this decade. It will come with a major restructuring of the entire Outaouais health care system and a net gain of 241 beds. At this time, it's expected that the new hospital will be in Hull or Aylmer. The hospital itself is expected to be $1.42B while the entire reorganization will be $1.54B. Here's a recent Le Droit article that gives more detail about the reorganization (for a few of the major hospital) and a breakdown of how the new facility's 600 beds will be used. https://www.ledroit.com/actualites/sante/futur-centre-hospit

  11. Your Guide to Stage 2 O-Train West Extension’s Slurry Plant Over the last few months, many Ottawa residents driving along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway (SJAM) may have seen what looks like an indoor golf driving range by the sight of a large white tent and two white silos (6m high) in the Kitchissippi Ward, near Cleary Avenue. The structure has nothing to do with sports. In fact, the site is called a slurry plant. This plant
