I keep hearing LRT is coming to Barrhaven (from Jimbo Watson and Jan Harder's Twitter feeds, among other media outlets). Any timeline when that will happen and will it extend past Marketplace?

Any idea when the waterpark around Bankfield (or is it Barnsdale) will open? Last I heard it's supposed to be summer 2019...that's not too far off isn't it but I have barely heard any chatter.

No idea about LRT but the last I heard about Alottawata (or something like that) was that it was delayed again. Not for another few years.

I was at a BBIA focus/working group where the topic was BH Transpo planning yesterday and they did say that the ask will be for it to go to Cambrian. Doesn't mean it will happen. They (the City I believe) plan on holding some "open houses" so the public can learn more in the coming months from what I was told. By all accounts we have made good progress in that once the Environmental Assessment is complete we will be at the same stage as Orleans and Kanata....and it will be up to us to make a business case as to why we need LRT first/most from there.

LRT feasibility study budget for barrhaven was approved . the budget approved for this study is 700K.

the result of this study will be the main factor to decide if they are going with it or not

LRT to Barrhaven? 15 years later they still doing studies. Here's an idea, drive to work from Barrhaven in the morning, and back home to Barrhaven after work. That should tell you everything you need to know.

The Barrhaven Transportation Strategy focus group I mentioned is encouraging people to do this short survey, see copied message below, feel free to share:
…….…………………………………..

Hello Barrhaven Residents. We want to hear from you about your local transit and transportation priorities and opportunities for improvement. With City Council's approval of the Environmental Assessment of a Barrhaven North-South LRT Line from Baseline station, the time has never been better for us to cooperatively lobby all levels of government for the funding to get this done. This is a game-changer for the people who commute to and from the greater Barrhaven area and it will greatly assist us with attracting employment-based businesses to our business parks. The Barrhaven Transportation Strategy Focus Group, lead by the Barrhaven Business Improvement Area and Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder, is a collaborative effort that includes the Councillors in Wards 21 and 22, the development community and local Community Associations; Cedarhill, Orchard Estates, Stonebridge, Half Moon Bay, West Barrhaven, Barrhaven East and Havenlea-Chapman Mills. This is a critical time to get organized as a community to prepare and to advocate for Barrhaven in the new year. Please participate in our very brief (3-minute) survey before November 21st: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Move-Barrhaven-Avancer. A Move-Barrhaven-Avancer Town Hall will be held early in the new year where we will outline the results of this survey and share our draft findings for the strategy. Thank you for your input. Please SHARE!
CONTACT: Andrea Steenbakkers, BBIA Executive Director, at execdirector@barrhavenbia.ca.

I took this road every day for a good 5 years and I feel bad for the homeowners living around the area as more houses continue to pop up, without an adequate infrastructure support in place

They definitely need to hurry up with building the infrastructure in Barrhaven rather than just building more houses non-stop. I thought the Strandherd widening was supposed to start this year but haven't seen any signs of it yet. Anyone know when that's scheduled to begin?

I wonder if the Federal election have any influence in all of this... they were working vigorously on all 3 bridges going to Gatineau, as well as Hog's Back. Causing all this traffic. But stuff like widening Strandherd, or Realignment of Greenbank gets pushed back.

The GB realignment was promised to the thousands of people who migrated (ha!) to HMB by 2015, 2020 at latest. Amenities, better bus service, and safer and improved access for cars/bikes etc would follow. Now the message is hopefully it happens by 2030 - quite the bottleneck, no pun intended. Traffic going over the Tetris Bridge is going to get WAYYYYY worse before it gets any better.
