CALGARY –  The city says it’s moving ahead with the Green Line LRT now that an extensive provincial review of the project is done.

The city says following the conclusion of the review, it is taking “responsible and prudent action” to move the line along and it will now be constructed through a phased procurement strategy.

The first phase will run from Eau Claire to Shepard, connecting the southeast with downtown.

“Moving forward with a new procurement will bring greater cost certainty and ensure we can deliver on our mandate to build Green Line, within council approved direction, on behalf of our funding partners and for Calgarians,” said Green Line Board Executive Chair Don Fairbairn in a release.

he says the business case for the new LRT line remains strong.

The city says phase two of Green Line construction–Eau Claire to 16 Ave. N–will go ahead if no cost escalations or additional risks pop up during phase one.

It adds the cost of several major infrastructure projects has gone up across North America due to the pandemic.
