The Green Line is progressing forward and to ensure that Calgarians, and Community Associations are kept in the loop about next steps for the Green Line, and what the team has been working on so far you can sign up for regular email updates. They will have information on stations, construction updates, timelines, along with any more open houses that will be organized. So sign up and stay in the loop. Thank you for all the hard work done so far, 2017 was a busy year for the team, and the work involved to get the Green Line ready for construction is a huge task. Ward 4 will also see more land purchases along Centre Street as the north leg is prepared. The Green Line has a great website with lots of information and visuals of the Green Line, and what this will mean for your community. Take a look!
Green Line LRT: All Aboard
2017 has been an eventful year for the Green Line. The City has been working closely with Calgarians over the last three years on planning the long term vision for the Green Line LRT, including setting the route and station locations. This year, the full 46 kilometre vision was approved by Council, and funding commitments were made by all three levels of government. Council also approved the first stage of construction, which includes building 20 kilometres of track from 16 Avenue N to 126 Avenue SE; 14 stations (including four underground stations); four park and rides; a new maintenance and storage facility; and a new fleet of light rail vehicles. Since these approvals, the team has been hard at work mapping out next steps and ramping up Green Line construction projects.

First things first: please subscribe to our email distribution list. This is the best way to ensure you’re getting the latest Green Line information from The City. We won’t always send snail mail about engagement opportunities and construction activities, so subscribing to receive our regular email updates is best.
Tell us how you want to see the Green Line integrated into your community.
We’re refining the design of the Green Line and want your input on safety and security, aesthetics and landscaping, and access to stations. From January to March 2018, we’ll be hosting sessions and online opportunities where you can provide feedback on how the LRT will look and feel in your community. Input collected from the public will be reflected in the technical documents that will guide the construction of the Green Line.
Subscribe to our email distribution list and watch for Facebook ads and other promotions in your community in the new year for session details, dates and times.
Green Line construction projects in your communities
Calgarians living or working along Stage 1 of the Green Line will have already started to see construction activity along the future Green Line route. These construction activities include items like utility relocation, environmental remediation and land preparation. Doing this work now means it will be easier to build the Green Line LRT tracks and stations in the future.
A full list of the projects under construction, in design or undergoing public engagement is available at www.calgary.ca/GreenLine.
