The Green Line LRT has long been a topic of conversation, and now two more options for connecting the Beltline and Victoria Park to the future Inglewood/Ramsay station are being evaluated by City administration.
On April 11, 2017, City Council approved a recommendation from administration that the Green Line go underground in the Beltline from 2 Street SE to MacLeod Trail.
However, planners have not yet decided how the line will connect from MacLeod Trail to the Inglewood/Ramsay Station.
Administration is currently considering four options for the alignment, with two new ones coming to the floor.
One of the new options would see the Green Line move north from Centre Street station on 12 Avenue South, running parallel to the CP tracks until it reached Inglewood/Ramsay station.
The second option would allow the Green Line to move around the Transit Centre, until the centre is relocated, and the tracks could be realigned and given a station in the same place.
City Administration is still exploring each of the options, and will analyse data as well as speak to stakeholders and communities to form their recommendation, which they expect to be brought to City Council this June.
There will be two drop-in sessions that will give the community opportunities to learn about each of the options as well as the impacts they may have.
The City of Calgary has lots of public information available on the Green Line LRT project which can be found directly on the city’s website, but there’s also an official webpage devoted to the project that can be found here.
