Metro Line trains on the track this weekend.....

Intersections along the Metro Line right-of-way will be periodically closed to accommodate train movements. Affected intersections include: 105 Street/105 Avenue, 105 Street/106 Avenue, 105 Street/107 Avenue, Kingsway/104 Street, 111 Avenue/106 Street and Princess Elizabeth Avenue/106 Street. Intersections will be closed for several minutes at a time. Flag people will direct traffic during the closures. 

Please stay off the tracks and only cross at designated crossings when permitted.

Testing of the new signalling system will continue until it is ready to support the operation of the Metro Line, which is scheduled to open to service by the end of 2014. The signalling system will allow Metro Line and Capital Line trains to safely and reliably share the same tracks between Health Sciences/Jubilee Station and Churchill Station.

The Metro Line represents the next major step towards transforming Edmonton’s transportation system. It is expected to add 13,200 weekday riders to Edmonton’s LRT network and link major destinations such as NAIT, the Royal Alexandra Hospital and MacEwan University to the rest of the network.

The City of Edmonton thanks motorists, pedestrians, businesses and residents for their patience during testing.
