Last week the City presented the implementation report on phase 2 of the LRT project which extends LRT to Moodie Drive. This is good news for Kanata as it moves LRT a little closer to our community. With the Environmental Assessment now getting underway to determine the route to Canadian Tire Place we are moving to obtaining the information to get phase 3, LRT to at least Terry Fox Station moved forward. Construction to Moodie will be complete in 2023 and that’s when we need to be ready to start the next phase and finally get Kanata connected into the LRT system.
Update from September 8, 2016:
The City has received confirmation that 57 projects related to transit and active transportation have been considered eligible by the Federal and Provincial governments for funding. The federal contribution, based on 50% partnership with the City, is $155.9M. Three of the projects are in the Kanata North area. These are
1) Kanata LRT Extension- Environmental Assessment. This is the previously announced study to determine the route for light rail transit from Bayshore to Canadian Tire Place.
2) Two Cycle Links, one at Carling at March Rd and 3) the other at Herzberg at March. These will improve commuter access to the Kanata North Business Park and Eagleson Park and Ride. Further information will be provided as details are made known.
