Background photos and drawings
This page will include some photos and drawings of various areas relating to the LRT project.
City of Ottawa airphoto of their proposed Dominion station location at the April 25, 2013 City Hall Open House. The proposed LRT station would be right on the Berkley/Dominion street loop rather than in the existing Transitway trench in this proposal. The City has since changed this. (We think!)

Click the image to hear 50 seconds of OC Transpo’s noise pollution at the Dominion Transitway station from the 10th floor of an adjacent apartment building. The woodlot is a sound buffer for many, if not all of us, north of the Barclay and Plaza Towers. Even if LRT trains may be quieter, the woodlot also has a high environmental and recreational value.
There are photos of the wood lot west of the Dominion Transitway station at http://dominionlrt.shutterfly.com
