Edmonton — The Valley Line
Edmonton has one of the fastest growing cities in Canada. Expanding its public transit will help shape this growth sustainably. The Valley Line is a 27 km line that will be built in multiple stages, with the first 13 km portion now under construction. It is scheduled to open to the public by the end of 2020.
The Valley Line LRT – Stage 1 project represents the biggest single infrastructure investment in Edmonton’s history. During construction, the Stage 1 project is forecast to create approximately 17,000 direct and indirect jobs in Alberta, directly contributing $1.1 billion in salaries and wages to the Alberta economy. An additional 1,600 jobs will be created across Canada, contributing $95 million more in salary and wages to the national economy.
