WHAT OTTAWA IS TALKING ABOUT

▪️The City has reversed ferret over its choice of a company to review the safety of the O-Train. The City had chosen STV Inc to do the review, overlooking the fact that the company had been involved in providing services to the system's builders. The City said the company was not involved in the design of the O-Train but optics must be considered now, and the search is on for a new safety reviewer. [Ottawa Citizen]

+ Related No date known for when the Confederation Lline will return

▪️The rate of installing electric vehicle charging stations planned for Ottawa has slowedThe City had planned to have 26 new charging stations, but will only have a dozen or so by the end of the year. [CFRA]

▪️The City is looking at buying abandoned rail line that runs from the western Greenbelt, through Kanata, and ending at Morris Island Drive. The former CN line pulled up its tracks and ties a few years ago and has been maintained by the West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association. The City has a policy of buying old rail lines for future transportation or recreation use. This one would cost $740,000 for the 32 km route. [CTV]
