The City of Calgary is upgrading all existing Calgary Transit LRT station platforms to accommodate four-car trains, which will be introduced in the near future. Starting with Rundle Station, the platforms in the northeast from Bridgeland to Rundle Station are the next on the list for upgrades. These stations are in need of refurbishment due to wear and tear. So, at the same time they are being extended for four-car trains, the existing platforms will also be replaced. Station furnishings, such as the shelters, signage, lighting and benches, will also be refurbished or replaced with upgraded furnishings.
Rundle Station construction timeline:
- Starting January 2013, construction will begin with the removal of existing furnishings, while the station remains open.
- Currently, the plan is to close the station over the May long weekend in order to remove and replace the existing platform, but this date will be confirmed.
- During the time the station is closed, Calgary Transit will operate shuttle buses between Rundle and the two adjoining stations, Whitehorn and Marlborough.
- The Rundle Station platform redevelopment is expected to be completed by fall 2013.
- See before and after drawings of the station.
