OECA Perspective on NCC Review of Parkway Policy

Given the impact of the NCC’s lands and parkways on the community of Old Ottawa East, one of the four communities constituting “Rideau Island,” between the Rideau River and Rideau Canal in central Ottawa, the OOECA welcomes the opportunity to provide input to the National Capital Commission’s related reviews of its parkway policy and the Capital Urban Lands Master Plan. Read here for a draft of the OECA position on this NCC policy review.

Update on safe crossings along Queen Elizabeth Drive and Colonel By Drive

The following information was provided by the NCC:

"As part of the NCC's efforts to improve the level of comfort of pedestrians crossing the parkways, which included the Rideau Canal Corridor Pedestrian Crossings Study completed in 2011 and community consultations held in 2010, I can confirm that the NCC will be moving forward with planned improvements at Queen Elizabeth Drive and 5th avenue. We hope to complete the necessary works this year to coincide with the opening of Landsdowne. We have completed work on the first priority crossing at Hartwell Locks.

The crossing at Colonel By and Clegg St. will be the next one to be completed, as soon as funds are available. It is important to note that we are advancing the crossing improvements separately from the footbridge project, while also ensuring that we work closely with the City of Ottawa to align planned future design and construction."
