Yes you’ve seen the pictures (or rather the artist’s representations) of the bold new light-rail stations.
No doubt many of them will be as fine as the plans show.
Transfer points have been constructed at Tunney’s Pasture and they look pretty permanent. Will these be in use when light rail is operating? Could be. They’re not in the artist’s representations.
But your intrepid Bulldog went to Tunney’s to get the visual evidence. Right now at least, it’s a pretty bleak landscape of roads and pavement. A treeless asphalt and concrete plain which no doubt city planners think is progress.
Wonder if those same planners will be transferring at Tunney’s in the rain, sleet, snow, cold and heat of Ottawa weather.
Looks like a great place to catch pneumonia. Has the ambience of the Chicago stockyards.
