The Capital Line South extension preliminary design is complete. The project will move forward when funding becomes available.

Where We Are

Update - June 2020

City Council voted in favour of a motion that makes the Capital Line South LRT extension from Century Park to Ellerslie Road the City’s next priority for LRT expansion.

The Governments of Canada and Alberta have committed $2.94 billion for LRT network expansion in Edmonton. A total of $2.25 billion has been approved for the Valley Line West and Metro Line extension projects, which leaves $690 million in available LRT infrastructure funding.

With Council’s endorsement, the City will prepare a preliminary business case and capital profile for Council’s consideration in August/September 2020.

Background

On January 22 2019, City Council approved the concept plan amendments to the Capital Line South LRT extension from Century Park to Ellerslie Road.

The City has completed preliminary design for Phase 1 (Century Park to Ellerslie Road) of the project and advanced the concept design for Phase 2 (Ellerslie Road to Allard/Desrochers).
