Ottawa LRT plan changes for 4367452th time

The city's latest light-rail transit plan might be moving in a different direction.

Based on feedback from a series of public consultations that began in September, city staff are expected to alter the plan, which takes light rail from Riverside South to the Blair Rd. transit station.

About 5,000 people participated in public meetings, wrote to the city or visited the city's website, offering alternatives and suggestions on how to proceed with rapid transit. Many said taking light rail east-west should be the priority.

Coun. Alex Cullen, chairman of the city's transit committee, confirmed staff will be tabling a modified transit plan on Monday.

"What councillors will likely see is a modified east-south proposal that will move up the western corridor earlier than had initially been planned," said Cullen.
