    Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I’m pretty sure it’s just a lay down site for the place under construction across 116 Street.

    This is the kind of TOD we need more of. A six-storey building being built on what was once two lots a block from Strathearn Station. 😍

    Roads to Avoid

    The LRT on 111 Street is a blessing and a curse. If you time it right, and you’re running next to a train, you’ll get all green lights.

    Blatchford Development | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I believe there are lots on Alpha Blvd that are intended for mixed use. Hopefully we start to see a little “Main Street” develop.

    We’ve delivered a bunch of rails and ties to their site recently (I work for CPKC). They’re definitely getting ready to build a rail yard. Not sure what else is planned for the site.

    Edmonton - Red Deer - Calgary Hyperloop | ?m | ?s | Transpod

    Also please remember the Dayliner existed at a time when the corridor was not as populous, people were more car crazy, and had little appetite for anything other than suburban living. Also the Dayliner service itself left a lot to be desired, mainly in frequency and reliability. Saying it didn’t...

    Blatchford Development | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    They expanded the road network out toward the LRT line this fall. I imagine builders will start building out that way soon.

    Commuter & Regional Rail

    Actually you can, and many places do mix HSR with regular passenger traffic. The important part is having services in place so a modal shift can start to happen. There are tons of examples of 200km/h trains using the same tracks as 120-160 km/h trains. I’m still not convinced that Alberta will...

    Advanced Skills Centre | ?m | 4s | NAIT

    Looks like this might be NAIT's next expansion priority? Nestled between an existing building and a parkade between 106 and 109 Streets, north of 118 Ave.

    Commuter & Regional Rail

    What bothers me about your first statement, is that you don’t even specify HSR, you just say “rail” is not feasible. That is insane considering the passenger rail connections all around the world servicing population centres much smaller than ours. Regular speed is what we need now. Buy some...

    Commuter & Regional Rail

    The original mandate letter from Danielle Smith mentioned Calgary - Okotoks and Airdrie, and Edmonton - YEG

    The Parks | 146.91m | 45s | 35s | 13s | Pangman | Hariri Pontarini

    Starting on the cladding too. Let’s hope it looks alright 🤞🏻

    Stantec Tower | 250.84m | 66s | ICE District Prop.

    There’s also Loblaws. They have their to-go counter right next to the pedway to Stantec. Very convenient.

    LRT Expansion Planning

    I agree Beaumont is far enough out for regional rail, but the problem is there was never a rail line built through Beaumont, so establishing a regional rail line would be costly. The closest line is probably CPKC’s mainline through Nisku, but that’s already quite a bit of a hike from Beaumont...

    LRT Expansion Planning

    There were long-term LRT maps in the past that showed the Valley Line continuing east along 28 Ave to 50 Street, and then south down 50 to Ellerslie Road. I have never seen any city plans to continue it south from there, but I think an eventual extension to Beaumont makes sense.

    Bonnie Doon Mall Redevelopment | ?m | ?s

    I specifically went to the Safeway at Bonnie Doon yesterday just to have an excuse to take the train even though I live 4 blocks from the Unity Square one 😂

    Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    If anyone hasn't had a chance to ride the Valley Line yet, you may be interested in my video documenting the entire line from Mill Woods to 102 Street.

    EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

    Is it though? What about Wetaskiwin or Olds? The right approach is inter-city rail with HSR coming once demand is there.
