Sure the paving could be improved but from my experience Carling from Moodie to Kanata is not bad. As for the underpass that is simply a matter of timing the two seconds it should take you to get through it. If you don't feel competent to handle that stretch then get off the road and on to the bike path that runs west from Moodie and gives you two choices in to Kanata.
