Great video found by one Ottawa forumer Hybrid247. It speaks of how the O-Train network will change the city and shape it over the next 25 years. Awesome shots of the city, the skyline and of course, the O-Train network.

And yet all those interviews are from developers who have dragged their feet on transit-oriented development in Ottawa. The city is still incredibly suburban inside the Greenbelt.

Most of the inner Greenbelt is poorly served by transit, though that does not excuse the lack of development over the 30 years of the Transitway.

Since the start of construction of Confederation, we have seen great strives in TOD around Stage 1 and Stage 2. Starting with development around Carling Station, to new towers and proposals at Blair and a slew of proposals along the Scott Street transit trench.

TOD proposals south of Walkley and east of Blair, other than Trim, is greatly lacking so far.

BAPE documents were posted last week for the Québec City tram project;

https://www.bape.gouv.qc.ca/fr/dossi...documentation/

Even more visuals in the powerpoint posted June 22. Project has secured funding, running in 2026/2027.


Tram bus portion of project has reportedly been dropped; https://www.ledevoir.com/societe/tra...s-a-un-tramway

Too bad the Trambus portion was dropped, but I'm not surprised. Quebec City way underestimated the cost. I'm positive Gatineau will do the same, dropping one of the branches completely.

New Skytrain Operation Control Centre. Construction should start in 2021 with opening in 2024. It will be built on the site of OMC2, across the street from OMC1, the main storage an maintenance facility and site of the current operations centre.

The original 1980s Control facility cannot support the upcoming extensions.

Translink is also considering a fourth rail yard (a small storage facility was built as part of the Evergreen extension somewhere near the Langley extension.

Note that Canada Line has its own Operation Centre and rail yard independent of Expo and Millennium.

I took the following yesterday, of the Eglinton Crosstown work going on between Leslie Street and Laird Ave. The following will show the track installation and grade separation along the point where the tracks come out of the tunnel and head toward Don Mills...

It's substantially more than the trambus.

It's the Green Line all over again, disappointing but expected.
