  • Connect to greenspace including the Ottawa River pathway and the National Capital Commission’s future Linear Waterfront Park, Westboro Beach, and Pinecrest Creek Corridor..

Extension Description

The Confederation Line West extension project will add 15 km of rail and 11 new or converted rapid transit stations to the City’s overall light rail transit (LRT) network at Westboro, Kìchì Sìbì, Sherbourne, New Orchard, Lincoln Fields, Iris, Algonquin College, Queensview, Pinecrest, Bayshore and Moodie.

At Moodie, the Confederation Line West LRT extension will connect directly to the West Transitway to Kanata, and the Southwest Transitway to Barrhaven facilitating easy transfers to and from the Transitway.

Moving east from Bayshore, the line continues along the existing bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor to a converted Pinecrest Station, then to a new station at Queensview Drive. It then runs, at grade, parallel to the north side of Highway 417 before entering into a underground covered trench beneath Connaught Avenue and then crossing above Pinecrest Creek.

At Pinecrest Junction, the alignment splits, with one branch continuing via the Pinecrest Creek corridor along the existing Southwest Transitway through Iris Station and terminating at Algonquin Station. The other branch continues north and then east along Confederation Line, passing through Lincoln Fields Station before entering an underground covered trench. New Orchard Station will be located under a small section of the Byron Linear Park.

East of Woodroffe Avenue, the line will run beneath Byron Linear Park, following the road alignment to the new Sherbourne Station also located under a small section of Byron Linear Park. It will continue beneath the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway, emerging from the underground covered trench before reaching Kìchì Sìbì Station on the existing Transitway. Continuing east along the Transitway trench, the line will reach Westboro Station just north of Scott Street, and finally meet with the first-stage Confederation Line at Tunney’s Pasture Station.

O-Train West Extension Construction Activities

Sherbourne Station

Sherbourne Station is a new station. The single station entrance will be located within the Byron Linear Park between Cleary Avenue and Sherbourne Road. The station entrance plaza will seamlessly integrate with the planned functions of the Bryon Linear Park, activating this node within the park. Bicycle parking will be provided in the station plaza and PPDUO spaces will be provided on both the north and south side of Bryon Avenue.
