Project Update - March 2021

The City has switched over to a new signalling system for the Metro Line LRT. The Metro Line is now using a fixed-block signalling system on the tracks between MacEwan and NAIT Stations (the same technology as the Capital Line LRT). This system will offer a reliable service without needing manual interventions like slower speeds, which was necessary with the previous signalling system.

Now that the Metro Line is using a fully-functioning signalling system, we can continue making operational improvements, including intersection performance.

About the Project

Operate Phase

The Metro Line is a 3.3 km extension from Churchill LRT Station in downtown Edmonton northwest to NAIT. It’s the first segment of a planned LRT expansion to Edmonton city limits near St. Albert and is part of the Transportation Master Plan’s vision to expand LRT service to all sectors of the City by 2040.

Because land use and transportation are closely linked, LRT growth will be guided by the principle of transit-oriented development. Its goal is to create compact neighbourhoods with a mixture of residential, employment, recreational, and business opportunities within convenient walking distance of transit.
