Barrhaven’s population has exploded over the last 20 years. In 2001, 40,000 people called Barrhaven home, today, that number is almost 100,000. A lot of our problems are based on the fact that our infrastructure hasn’t kept up with this explosive growth.
One clear example of this is that we only have one highway on-ramp at Strandherd. However, all other major communities in Ottawa, like Kanata, Orleans, and Nepean, have multiple highway access points.
This means Barrhaven residents have to sit in gridlock traffic on Strandherd just to get onto a highway that is seldom busy.
Another on-ramp in the south of Barrhaven would alleviate traffic and give residents in Half Moon Bay and Stonebridge another option while making the Strandherd on-ramp a lot less busy.
So far, the City has supported a new on-ramp at Barnsdale road, and the Province has agreed to fund a study to start the building process.
If they get their way, they might delay the project or, worse, cancel it outright.
WE NEED THIS INFASTRUCTURE!
This is why as your City Councillor, I will work to ensure a new highway on-ramp gets built in Barrhaven.
I have spent the last ten months knocking on doors all over Barrhaven. Time and time again, you have shared a number of issues. You have told me that our community needs better roads and bridges, more reliable transit, and improved community safety. The rising cost of living is hurting a lot, and families cannot shoulder drastic tax increases to fund pie-in-the-sky promises.
I can relate to these concerns, because, as a Barrhaven resident, I live them myself.
That’s why I’m proud to share my exciting platform with my vision of how, together, we can address these issues and build a better Barrhaven.
I hope I can count on your support in this journey and your vote come October 24th, 2022.
Let David know you support this policy.
Thanks for showing your support!
