Connecting New Communities and Improving Service: An Overview of Stage 2's Southern Extension
O-Train Line 2 first opened on October 15, 2001, and featured 5 stations from Bayview in the north to Greenboro in the south. The O-Train is quickly being expanded to add additional service coverage in the East, West and South of Ottawa, in a project called Stage 2 LRT. In this video, we will be providing an overview of the Southern Extension of O-Train Line 2, which will extend service south to Limebank in Riverside South, as well as the Airport Link (or Line 4) that will service the Ottawa International Airport.
This project will increase the length of Line 2 from 8km to 20km and feature a total of 11 new and existing stations. An interesting particularity of this segment is that it will feature several elevated segments along the line. A separate spur line, Line 4 or the Airport Link, will run between the South Keys Station and the Airport, providing an O-Train connection between the Airport terminal and the rest of the O-Train network. It will feature a length of 4km and have 3 stations (including South Keys).
