Phase 1 of the Capital Line South extension began early construction works in Spring 2022 and will continue into 2023. The competitive process to select a contractor to design and build the extension also launched in 2022, and we anticipate selecting the contractor by late 2023. 

About The Project

Build Phase

The extension will be completed in two phases. The first will extend the line from Century Park to Ellerslie Road and Phase 2 will extend from Ellerslie Road to Allard/Desrochers. Concept design for Phase 2 has been advanced.

Capital Line South Phase 1 (Century Park to Ellerslie Road) is a 4.5 km long, high floor LRT and includes: 

  • An underpass at 23 Avenue
  • Bridges crossing Blackmud Creek and Anthony Henday Drive
  • A new operations and maintenance facility south of Anthony Henday Drive
  • A neighbourhood LRT station at Twin Brooks (which will be smaller in size compared to a multi-modal transit station like Century Park)
  • A multi-modal LRT station connecting to the Heritage Valley Park & Ride at Ellerslie Road
