Pedestrian Safety Audit
Thursday, April 24th | 170 Booth Street (at Albert) in the basement meeting room at CCOC building (buzz to get in)
Residents will be conducting a pedestrian safety audit of the proposed Transitway Diversion route for the upcoming LRT construction. The first
audit will be with the Women's Initiatives for Safer Environments (wiseottawa.ca) and will look at safety on the proposed new multi-use
pathway that will be built on the north side of Bayview Transitway Station through the Bayview Yards. Residents will also do an audit of the
multi-use pathways on the north side of Scott and Albert streets from Holland to Empress. There will be four teams auditing different areas,
looking for issues associated with lighting, hiding places, calling for emergency help and more.
