New LRT Line in Edmonton on track for late 2021

The new line's twin tunnels' southern portal is located at Louise McKinney Park.

The company tasked with building and maintaining Edmonton's newest LRT line provided more details for the completion of the southeast Valley Line LRT.

TranEd said the $1.8-billion project has now reached its safety and communications systems testing phase and that he expects the new line will be operational by late 2021.

Originally slated to open by the end of 2020, construction on the 13.1-kilometre line has met its share of challenges.

The date was pushed back due to issues near the North Saskatchewan riverbend, work on the Valley Line's Tawatinâ Bridge was delayed and caused subsequent ripple effects on the rest of the project. COVID-19 also pushed back the expected release
