Tran­sit­way re­opens after crash

Ottawa Sun - - NEWS -

OC Transpo re­opened the sec­tion off Tran­sit­way be­tween Do­min­ion and Tun­ney’s Pas­ture sta­tions Sun­day evening and closed the tem­po­rary bus stops on Scott Street.

The sec­tion had been closed since a dou­ble-decker Route 269 bus crashed into a tran­sit sta­tion just be­fore 4 p.m. on Fri­day.

The wrecked bus was towed away on Satur­day and on Sun­day, work­ers made re­pairs to the sta­tion.

OC Transpo said com­muters would be able to ac­cess bus ser­vice on the Tran­sit­way plat­forms at Lin­coln Fields, Do­min­ion and West­boro sta­tions.

West­bound buses would use stop 1A at the West­boro sta­tion.

Cus­tomer ser­vice staff would be on hand to as­sist rid­ers.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic want­ing to leave a me­mento or me­mo­rial item for the crash vic­tims were asked to do so at one of two tem­po­rary sites: the west­bound plat­form at the lower end and at the north west cor­ner of Scott and Athlone streets.

Peo­ple want­ing to hold a vigil were asked to gather on the side­walk on Scott Street in front of the sta­tion.

Mayor Jim Wat­son said a book of con­do­lences would be avail­able at Ot­tawa City Hall from noon Mon­day un­til the end of Sun­day, Jan. 20.
