The City of Ottawa has initiated its pre-consultation / initial planning process for the upcoming Environmental Assessment (EA) Study for the proposed West Transitway Connections. The West Transitway Connections is a key component of the recommended interconnected system of rapid transit corridors. The Corridor offers significant opportunities for compact, mixed-used development in the vicinity of stations. This project is being undertaken to improve transit service from Ottawa’s west end to central Ottawa; and address existing and future development issues.

This EA Study will be undertaken in accordance with the new Ontario Transit Regulation 231/08 under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

Public participation will form an integral part of the study. The first Open House has been arranged to present the study process, objectives, background and schedule, and also to provide the public and interested stakeholders an opportunity to discuss the study with the project team.

The City of Ottawa encourages interested persons to provide comments at any time during the pre-consultation or formal EA stages of this study. Please note that with the exception of personal information, all comments collected will become part of the public record.
