Green Line Industry Update – Feb. 2018
City of Calgary Administration has conducted an in-depth evaluation process to determine the best Delivery Model for Stage 1 of the Green Line LRT. Various models were investigated, ranging from full Private-Public-Partnerships (P3) to more traditional methods. The evaluation has now been completed, and Administration will present a recommendation to City Council at Priorities and Finance Committee (PFC) on March 6, 2018 and Council on March 19, 2018. Both PFC and Council meetings are open to the public, and can be live streamed from the website. Please visit the Council and Committee Meetings page closer to the date for the streaming link and access to meeting agendas and minutes. The recommendation and outcome of the March 19 Council meeting will be formally communicated via the Green Line website and the industry email list. Members of industry are reminded to avoid lobbying with City of Calgary Administration and City Council members as this could result in being precluded from future bidding. More information for interested industry partners can be found here. For further questions, please email email@example.com.

Green Line in my Community
Starting this month through March, we’re looking for your feedback on how the Green Line will look and feel in your community. Feedback collected at these sessions will be used to develop technical documents that will guide Green Line construction for the first 20 km of the line. Starting January 16 there will also be opportunities to provide your input online. There’s over 20 events happening between 16 Avenue N and 126 Avenue S.E. in the next two months. Find an event near you.
See you there!
Major Green Line construction on tracks and stations will begin in 2020.
In the meantime, work is already underway on several early construction projects, which are being done in preparation for larger Green Line construction in 2020. This includes utility relocation, landfill remediation, and road and transit improvements. Active projects include:
Pop Davies Athletic Park
Highfield and Ogden Landfills
Douglas Glen Park and Ride
Fish Creek Forcemain
A full list of the projects under construction, in design or undergoing public engagement is available at www.calgary.ca/GreenLine. Follow the Green Line story on Twitter @yyctransport #GreenLineYYC or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further questions.

On June 26, 2017, City Council approved the full 46 km alignment and 28 stations for the Green
Line LRT from 160 Avenue N to Seton. This is a major milestone for the program, and ensures that
the Green Line can be built in stages as funding becomes available.
The first stage of construction will extend from 16 Avenue N to 126 Avenue SE and is expected to
be constructed from 2020-2026 and estimated to cost $4.65 billion.
