The Kettle Island Bridge Committee

 In Community, Featured, Initiatives, Urban Planning

The MPCA has reconvened its Bridge Committee, which led the fight against the construction of a Kettle Island Bridge the last time the idea was pursued, a decade ago. Formed of community members with a broad range of experience, the aim of the Committee is to oppose the bridge that would funnel truck traffic down a widened Aviation Parkway, thereby interfere with the operation of the Montfort Hospital, and thus this could lead to the loss of key local treasures, including the Rockcliffe Flying Club, and swathes of recreational outdoor space, not to mention impose huge amounts of noise and dangerous pollution on the community.

The recent federal Budget called for the creation of a new office to consider the need and the best place for a new bridge, showing that the Kettle Island Bridge idea is still a serious threat.
