The Metro Line Northwest LRT is part of the City’s Transportation Master Plan vision to expand LRT service to all sectors of the City by 2040. Extending the current line will improve mobility and access to neighbourhoods north and northwest of the city, including the City of St. Albert.
The Metro Line Northwest will extend from a new station at NAIT, north through Blatchford to connect to key activity centres along 113A Street and then west along 153 Avenue to Campbell Road.
The extension will help reduce travel times as the city grows and vehicle congestion increases. It will provide Edmontonians and St. Albert residents with a sustainable, efficient and reliable mobility choice. It will connect people to key destinations in the city, such as NAIT, Royal Alexandra Hospital, services, shopping areas, the city centre and getting people back home at the end of a long day.
