As many projects for the west end flood investigation wind down, there will be others beginning shortly. Hydro Ottawa will be in the area of the Hazeldean Pumping Station for the construction of a new underground hydro service to the station that will run parallel to the Trans Canada Trail before crossing the trail leading towards the pump station property.
As well, the city is completing the preliminary and detail design of the west end flood mitigation phase two at a rear laneway on Hazeldean Road, regrading on Abbotsford Road at Morrena Road, and side yard drainage between houses on Morrena Road. This work will include geotechnical investigations to assess the subsurface conditions. For more information on all WEFI projects, please visit the Infrastructure section of my website.
In July 2011, the city and the Ottawa Senators came to an agreement to make the Scotiabank Place park-and-ride a reality. This agreement includes 100 parking spaces and a bus on-ramp to the 417. With the additional location, this brings the total park-and-ride spaces for Kanata to over 1800 spaces and over 25 per cent of total urban park-and-ride space within the city. I am continuing to work with staff to improve the OC Transpo service to Kanata South.
Last week I had the opportunity to clean Castlefrank Road from Hazeldean to Kakulu along with the Glen Cairn Community Association. I would like to thank GCCA President Rob Nino and the volunteers for their effort in keeping our community clean.
