Yesterday, Council’s Transportation and Transit Committee approved Centre Street as the route for the future North Central LRT. The Committee’s decision will now be forwarded to a meeting of City Council in January for further discussion. While this meeting is open to the public for observation either in person or online, there will not be an opportunity for the public to speak on the item. The next opportunity for the public to speak to the item will be in February when it returns to Transportation and Transit Committee. The focus of this discussion will be how the North Central LRT connects with the Southeast LRT in the downtown core.
The North Central LRT is the north leg of the Green Line, the next new LRT line in Calgary’s rapid transit network. As outlined in RouteAhead, a 30-year strategic plan for transit in Calgary, the Green Line will eventually run from North Pointe in north central Calgary to Seton in the southeast, with future extensions to the north possible in the longer term.
