Momentum is starting to increase on using the Prince of Wales Bridge as a commuter route.
The estimated cost of putting LRT on the bridge as well as pedestrian and bike lanes is $40 million.
If Gatineau threw in $10 million, the federal government $10 million and the two provinces $5 million each, that leaves Ottawa’s share at $10 million.
Sure wish we had that extra $1.4 billion back that has been overspent on the light-rail project. That would pay for about 14 overpasses to grade-separate roads to Barrhaven over the Via Rail line where six people were killed.
And maybe if there were change, a paltry $10 million to extend the light-rail line to Gatineau of the Prince of Wales Bridge.
