Pave shoulders on Old Montreal Road / Pavez l'accotement sur le chemin Old Montreal
ADD PAVED SHOULDERS / PAVEZ LES ACCOTEMENTS on/sur Old Montreal Road from/de Cumberland Village to/à Orleans/Ottawa
By signing this petition, I support the addition of paved shoulders to Old Montreal Road connecting Cumberland Village to Orleans/Ottawa. I believe this will increase the safety of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians commuting, training and travelling along this scenic and historical route.
This improvement creates bi-modal commuting options with cyclist, pedestrians and long-boarders easily accessing the Trim Road Transit Station.
This improvement links existing Ottawa River Cycling Paths at Petrie Island to Cumberland Village and surrounding communities.
All Cumberland youth attend schools in Orleans/Ottawa and Rockland. They need SAFE, ACCESSIBLE, healthy and inexpensive transportation to their schools, athletics, arts programs, part-time jobs and friends.
Action is required NOW. The URBAN BOUNDARY has been expanded to Frank Kenny Road, development is accelerating with the planned 4000+ new homes and businesses of Cardinal Creek Village and traffic continues to increase along Old Montreal Road. We need Old Montreal Road to be a safer, wider roadway especially during these years of construction.
This petition will be presented at "Building a livable Ottawa" planning sessions in order to make changes to Ottawa's Official Plan and Ottawa's Cycling Plan. Please note that Cumberland Village is not even shown on Ottawa's "Cycling Map" in the section titled, "Orleans/Cumberland" ! Perhaps more importantly, it will be presented at public consultations regarding Cardinal Creek Village and brought to the attention of Cumberland Ward Councillor Stephen Blais.

Additional informarion for your consideration:
Current Trim Road realignment construction includes cycling lanes from Trim to Cardinal Creek along Old Montreal Road and also includes Cycling lanes on all of Trim Road linking to North Service Road Paths at Petrie Island. Tamarack Homes' Cardinal Creek Village development of 4000+ homes, commercial areas, schools and parks. Hopefully Tamarack will be forced to improve Old Montreal Road with paved shoulders PRIOR to construction in order to ensure safety. This would leave only 2.5 km of paved shoulders for the City of Ottawa to improve to Cumberland Village.
