Recommended Posts

The Ottawa/Gatineau Rail Loop idea, your group, and other forums I have seen this month have inspired this idea. I think you might like it:

The article has been viewed by almost 23,000 people which I'm very happy about. I enjoy writing columns and sharing other columns & news stories on LinkedIn; and I plan to follow the Ottawa/Gatineau O-Train development very carefully. Congrats on a great forum Rail Fans Canada

Ottawa City Councillor Shawn Menard is part of a growing list of Ottawa community leaders who support the idea of a Bank Street O-Train Tunnel. Councillor Menard who represents Capital Ward 17 which encompasses the southern half of Bank Street boldly states “we need an alternative form of efficient transportation along Bank Street in the core. It (the Bank Street O-Train Tunnel) would improve the congestion that can occur, emissions, and local economic development.”

With the new line, I would have the segment between Lincoln Fields and St. Laurent numbered route 6, to differeniate it from the segment between Billings Bridge and St. Laurent.

If the Bank Street underground rail line goes ahead, the next thing to do will be to have current route 5 renumbered 8. As for what would remain of current route 6, it will most likely be renumbered 146 and shortened to operate between Greenboro and Billings Bridge, with service in the Downtown area replaced by an extension of route 10.
