Ottawa, ONT: City to spend CAD2 million to eliminate only crossing on O-Train corridor

30 May

The City of Ottawa is planning to spend CAD2 million to eliminate the only level crossing on the O train corridor along which an intensified service is to be introduced. The passive level crossing in question is on the Brookfield multi-use pathway which is to be diverted. The diversion will take the pathway under the railway at the existing bridge over Sawmill Creek. The alternative of upgrading the level crossing to active status has been considered but given the headway of eight minutes associated with the enhanced O-Train service this option has been dismissed.
