The study outlines a series of mobility enhancements, including bicycle facilities, multi-use pathways and crosswalks.

Western LRT Environmental Project Report - opportunity to voice your opinion

The City of Ottawa has drafted a report with more details on proposed LRT station location alignment, location, and access. This is a good chance to voice your opinion on station design and access, as it's relatively early in the process.
The QTSR Community Association plans to share comments with the City near the end of this summer, on stations within an 800 m radius of QTSR. Some of the Directors at Large have drafted some points below, and would like to hear from you on what comments you would like sent to the City, on behalf of our community association.
Please send your thoughts to qtsrcommunity@gmail.com. In addition, you are always welcome to send your comments directly to the City as well.
