Green Line Update - September 2019
Q3 Quarterly Update
Yesterday, the Green Line team presented the third quarterly update for 2019 to City Council’s Standing Policy Committee on Transportation & Transit (T&T) Committee. We confirmed our commitment to building Stage 1 of the Green Line within our $4.903 billion capital budget and highlighted some of the steps being taken to meet this commitment. We’re making progress to allow for the construction of Segment 1 between Ramsay and 126 Avenue S.E. to begin in 2021. Planning is also is underway for the route evaluation in Segment 2, between 16 Avenue N and Ramsay. As well, a Stakeholder Relations program is being rolled out to help communities and stakeholders prepare for and manage the potential impacts of LRT construction.
The Green Line’s third-party Technical and Risk Committee, comprised of external industry project specialists, also delivered an update on their terms of reference, preliminary schedule of reviews, and first independent review of the project.
