Intermittent section closures at Carp Road Park and Ride

Please note that the Carp Park & Ride upgrade work was originally scheduled to start August 8th has been moved forward to this Wednesday (August 2nd).

Sections of the Park and Ride will be closed intermittently until early September 2017 weather dependent, due to upgrade work being done at the facility.

 

The work will take place in stages during the daytime, and the facility will remain operational at reduced capacity throughout. The upgrades include surface paving, additional lighting, concrete repairs, a new bus pad and bike racks. Directional signage will guide pedestrians during sidewalk repairs.

 

The upgraded paved surface of the site will hopefully allow for an improved customer experience, by eliminating mud and puddles while delineating accessibility and other spaces with pavement markings.  The number of parking spots will also be increased, from approximately 115 spaces to approximately 150 spaces.

 

Many residents rely on this Park and Ride for service and the increased number of spaces will help to accommodate demand.

 

For convenience in the meantime, users are encouraged to park at Canadian Tire Centre, Terry Fox or Eagleson Park and Rides. For more information on these please visit here – http://www.octranspo.com/routes/park_and_ride
