Not sure if you are aware but the Valley Line is planned as "urban style" which for the City means running along streets and small stops so it isn't going to have massive infrastructure around the stops. City should encourage WEM/misericordia hospital to build pedways to the stations, but this would be the landowners obligation as neither are City property. Highly doubtful this is in the plans, it doesn't show up in any of the drawings. Over time you will see increased private interest in connecting to the LRT, I have no doubt about that.I hope you're right, but IMO the lack of integration is more of a now thing rather than before. Capital Line LRT was plumbed in well with the downtown pedway system, the U of A, and Southgate. The Metro Line failed to integrate well with Kingsway, MacEwan, and Rogers Place. Hell, they struggled hard to integrate the existing signal system with the new one.
I sure hope the Valley Line is tied in a helluva lot better.
