A four-lane road-widening project through the Greenbelt near Bells Corners, costing tens of millions of tax dollars, is pretty much a done deal.
There’s lots of car-centric sprawl planned for Stittsville and Kanata by our developer-financed politicians, so roads need to be widened at public expense to accommodate all the new commuters.
Making it three lanes instead of four would have eaten up less Greenbelt, but it was judged to be less safe for the high-speed traffic that this project will encourage.
The configuration below for Old Richmond/Hunt Club was rejected in favour of a roundabout.
So we’ll get a roundabout instead – even the “standard” ones aren’t cheap.
Not counting the environmental damage, which is considered “free,” here’s what the taxpayer will be paying for:
Is encouraging sprawl the best use of our tax dollars?
Looking to buy? Why be a sprawl commuter – move to the exciting rural/suburban/urban hybrid community of Bells Corners where we have it all! For example – the Camerons.
Big news for our Bells Corners boys – they get a new name from the crown.
Here are some of the younger Camerons marching through Lynwood Village.
