A city committee has delayed a vote on the proposed route for the second leg of Winnipeg's rapid-transit corridor amid concerns Fort Garry residents haven't had enough time to assess the potential impact on their neighbourhood.
Last week, the city released an administrative report recommending the city extend the second phase of the Southwest Transitway west through the Parker Lands, then southeast along a Manitoba Hydro corridor. The report said the proposed route will have less impact on traffic and will allow buses to travel faster, as there are fewer road crossings. It is also expected to attract more riders from future housing developments in the Parker Lands and adjacent areas.
