City proposes improvements to Trillium Line extension south

lrtCity proposes improvements to Trillium Line extension south

July 5, 2017 – Mayor Jim Watson announced today a new alignment for the O-Train Trillium Line extension as

part of the Stage 2 Light Rail Transit project.

The new alignment would move Bowesville Station to the edge of the urban boundary just southeast of the

Bowesville and Earl Armstrong intersection, bringing rail almost a full kilometre closer to the Riverside South

community. The new alignment also takes advantage of an existing City-owned rail corridor, ultimately reducing

the environmental impact on sensitive green spaces, in addition to reducing potential land costs and simplifying

construction.

This new Earl Armstrong/Bowesville station and alignment also facilitates a potential future extension to

Limebank Road to better integrate with the community of Riverside South as it grows. This potential future

extension to Limebank requires an amendment to the existing Environmental Assessment for the Trillium Line,

as well as a targeted update to the Community Design Plan for Riverside South. City staff will be completing

these updates over the summer.

The Trillium Line extension is one of the three extensions in Ottawa’s Stage 2 project package. In the South, the

Trillium Line will be expanded to reach Bowesville Station with a link to the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier Airport by

2021. In the East, the Confederation Line will extend to Trim Road by 2022. In the West, rail will reach

Algonquin College and Moodie Drive by 2023.

Once complete, Stage 2 will bring 70 per cent of Ottawa residents within five kilometers of fast, efficient, clean

and reliable rail with the capability of carrying an estimated 24,000 riders per hour per direction during peak

periods. The complete O-Train system will span 60 kilometres and include 41 stations.

by Steve | Comments Off
Proposed-Roadway-Modifications-Albion-and-Leitrim-1PROPOSED ROADWAY MODIFICATIONSPlease note that the following roadway modifications are conceptual and intended to only illustrate the proposed function.

Proposed Roadway Modifications Albion and Leitrim

The specific modifications being proposed are as follows:

Paving of shoulders on Albion Road to accommodate pedestrians, cyclists, stopped vehicles and emergency vehicles;
Implementing concrete sidewalks on all quadrants of the intersection;
Implementing smart channels on all four quadrants of the intersection;
Addition of bike boxes on all four quadrants of the intersection:
Widening of Albion Road on the approach to Leitrim to allow both additional northbound and southbound through lanes.
MODIFICATION OUTCOMES – BENEFIT AND IMPACTS

Pedestrians

The proposed paved shoulders, curbs, concrete sidewalks, pedestrian countdown signals and painted crosswalks at the intersection will better accommodate pedestrians.

Cyclists

Paved shoulders will improve conditions for cyclists and enhance safe mobility.

Transit

The proposed intersection modifications will reduce delays experienced by motorists and better facilitate turning movements at the intersection.

Vehicles

The proposed intersection modifications will reduce delays experienced by transit and better facilitate turning movements at the intersection.

Adjacent Land Uses

Property acquisition in the amount of approximately 1600 square metres from the NCC is required for the widening along Albion Road north of Leitrim Road. Property acquisition in the amount of approximately 1400 square metres from various land owners is required for the widening along Albion Road south of Leitrim Road.

PROJECTED IMPLEMENTATION DATES

The project is bundled as part of the LRT Phase 2 Trillium Line which has a timeline for completion in 2021. However the intersection work must be completed before the Leitrim Overpass so the works will be completed well before 2021.
