Britannia Pathway Wall: The stone retaining wall that supports a raised portion of the Capital Pathway network suffered further deterioration in the 2019 flooding and requires rehabilitation. Phase one of the project was completed in March 2020, and the second phase to advance the rehabilitation of the wall is planned for 2021. Read full news release.
Phase 2 is to be implemented for the full length of the pathway between Pic1 (access lane to river shore) and Pic2 (Scrivens St).
- This Phase involves replacing of the existing stone wall with the new RedyRock system wall.
- Please note that there are sections of the RedyRock system wall already built in this sector during the Phase 1.
- For Phase 2 we are proceeding with a Federal Land Use and Design Approval (FLUDA), various technical studies and the construction method similar to Phase 1 for the full length of this pathway sector.
- Funding has been secured for this Phase and the Design is 90% completed.
Phase 3 is to be implemented for the full length of the pathway between Pic2 (Scrivens St) and Pic3 (Croft St).
- This Phase involves building a new wall with the RedyRock system.
- This sector did not have a stone wall previously.
- For this Phase, we will need to obtain separate approvals (FLUDA, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, Environment Canada, various studies) since this is new construction.
- There is currently no funding allocated for this sector and the Design has not been initiated.
