In order to provide safe, essential natural gas to new customers in the Boundary Road area, Enbridge Gas is proposing to install two sections of pipeline -- 6.2 km of 4-inch steel pipe and 3.9 km of 4-inch polyethylene pipe respectively, and the installation of a new district station to support it. The Boundary Road Pipeline Project (the Project), would border the City of Ottawa and Township of Russell, along Boundary Road south of Highway 417.

The preliminary preferred route consists of two sections of pipeline having a total length of approximately 10.1 km and a district station. Section 1 will begin at Victoria Street and Cartwright Road where it will tie in to Enbridge’s existing pipeline. The 4-inch steel pipe will travel east along Cartwright Road to the intersection of Boundary Road, where it will veer north and continue along Boundary Road for 6.2 km, concluding at the corner of Burton Road where a district station will be installed. At the district station, Section 2 will begin and will consist of 3.9 km of 4-inch polyethylene pipe that continues north along Boundary Road to the new customers’ property just south of Highway 417.

The alternate route consists of two sections of pipeline having a total length of approximately 10.6 km and a district station. Section 1 will begin at Burton Road and St. Guillaume Road where it will tie in to Enbridge Gas’ existing pipeline. The 4-inch steel pipe will travel west along Burton Road for 6.7 km to the intersection of Boundary Road, where a district station will be installed. At the district station, Section 2 will begin and will consist of 3.9 km of 4-inch polyethylene pipe that continues north along Boundary Road to the new customers’ property just south of Highway 417.
