About The Project
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.
