Talking South Keys with RM Transit

Perhaps the most important element of the transformation of South Keys Centre is the OC Transpo O-Train Line 2 expansion project currently underway. While the former Line 2 (“Trillium Line”) ended at Greenboro, after construction is completed next year the line will run to Barrhaven, with several new stations along the way, including at South Keys.

The City of Ottawa is proposing significant changes to the busy intersection of Bank and Hunt Club bordering South Keys Centre, and Better South Keys Centre has been excited to be a stakeholder in the process.

After getting lots of interest and questions from his blog on the redevelopment of South Keys Centre, Ottawa South resident Matt Pinder convened a virtual public meeting on November 2, and then a second one on December 9, which brought together neighbours and community members — and not just from the immediate South Keys/Greenboro area. Matt was joined by a wide variety of other Ottawa South residents who use South Keys Centre services today, and who were interested in learning about this redevelopment project and in offering their thoughts.
