Lincoln Fields, Connaught, Queensview, and Pinecrest Station
The O-Train West Extension is one of the three major extensions to Ottawa’s Light Rail Transit Project. The extension will add over 15 km of new rail and 11 new stations between Tunney’s Pasture to Moodie Drive and to Algonquin station. It also comprises a maintenance and storage facility, 10 new bridges, 14 rehabilitated bridges and 2 Cut-and-Cover Tunnels.
This look ahead provides an overview of upcoming activities between Lincoln Fields Station and Pinecrest Station, as well as the expected community impacts including hours of work, noise from crews and equipment, pedestrian, and vehicle mobility etc. Solid progress is being made and construction activities across the alignment are set to resume which may see an increase in disruptions to adjacent residents.
Residents should be aware that 2022 continues to be a busy and a productive year and there is an increased requirement for nightwork across the alignment. Additional notifications to affected residents will precede all impactful activities occurring after 10:00 p.m., and a weekly summary of nightwork will also be shared at the outset of each week. If you would like to be included in the weekly updates, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the Ward 7 – Night Work Distribution List.
Over the summer period, activities between Connaught Park and Pinecrest interchange will be concentrated on the advancement of drilling and excavation for the Connaught Tunnel construction, bridge construction at Lincoln Fields and Carling Avenue, and on the guideway.
