Join us to learn more about the Capital Line South LRT project, and to help us plan for LRT and the future of your community. 

About The Project

Design Phase

The Capital Line South Extension, previously called the South LRT Extension, is part of the City’s Transportation Master Plan vision to expand LRT service to all sectors of the City by 2040. Expanding the existing line will improve mobility and access to existing and new neighbourhoods in the southwest sections of the City.

In 2013, all LRT routes in Edmonton were given names. Capital Line was selected as the name for the LRT route running from northeast Edmonton to the south city limit. The South LRT Extension is now called Capital Line South Extension.

2017 Preliminary Engineering Review

The project team is reviewing preliminary engineering for the Century Park to Ellerslie Road portion of the line to bring the project up to current standards from the preliminary design in 2010.

Concept Plans Approved

2009 and 2010
Concept plans for Ellerslie Road to 41 Ave SW were approved. 

July 2008
Council approved the Concept Plan for the South LRT Extension (SLRT) from Century Park to the south city limit (now called the Capital Line). The Concept Plan defined the alignment and station locations for this extension.

Updating Preliminary Design

In June 2017, additional preliminary engineering from Century Park to Ellerslie Road was started to review and refresh of the preliminary design, bring the project up to current standards and reflect the principles of Urban LRT.

Project Details

Capital Line South continues to be high floor LRT  and is 4.5km long and includes: 

  • An underpass at 23 Avenue, bridges crossing Blackmud Creek and Anthony Henday Drive
  • An operations and maintenance facility south of Anthony Henday Drive
  • A combined LRT station, transit centre, and Heritage Valley Park and Ride facility on Ellerslie Road, between 127 Street and 135 Street

The park and ride is not a part of this project.

Reviewing

The current LRT work will look at:

  • The possiblity to add a station adjacent to Twin Brooks to reflect Urban LRT principles 
  • How the stations are integrated into the adjacent communities, with regards to aesthetics and materials
  • Assessing 9 and 12 Avenues, and Ellerslie Road, for potential raised or lowered crossings from street level using a Council approved assessment framework
