In November 2008, Ottawa City Council approved its long-range Transportation Master Plan, which recommends the extension of the West Transitway from Bayshore Station to Moodie Drive as a priority project required to address significant current transit operational concerns in the west urban community. In order to take advantage of near-term federal and provincial funding opportunities, the City has initiated a study to complete all outstanding planning and design work for this facility.
This project is being planned in accordance with the Province of Ontario's Transit Projects Assessment Process (O. Reg. 231/08). Similar to the Individual and Class EA processes, the Transit Projects Assessment Process requires the consideration of alternative designs, public and agency consultation, an assessment of potential environmental impacts and the identification of measures to mitigate impacts. The study will be documented in an Environmental Project Report and placed on the public record for a 30-day review period.
