We encourage you to check them out and find the perfect Christmas gift for someone on your list.

Light Rail Vehicle mock-up unveiled

Last month, Green Line received a mock-up of our future low-floor Light Rail Vehicle (LRV). The mock-up was built by CAF, who will supply our new fleet of 28 Urbos 100 LRVs. The mock-up is constructed of wood and features an interior of materials similar to the final product. Before we bring the mock-up out into the community, it will be used to validate technical requirements and train future Green Line LRV operators. To find out more about the mock-up and what makes Green Line’s LRVs special, visit our LRV Experience page.

Local LEGO® Masters Build Green Line LRV

Calgary firefighters Stephen Joo and Stephen Cassley were contestants on season 3 of the popular FOX TV series LEGO® Masters, which features builder teams with incredible creativity and engineering genius who compete for the ultimate prize. “The Stephens” were runners-up, coming in second place out of 13 teams that competed.

Green Line collaborated with The Stephens to build a model of the new light rail vehicle that will be introduced to Calgary when Green Line begins operations – the Urbos 100. The LEGO® model will be at Green Line's community events in 2023. 

Construction update

To make way for the future alignment and stations, underground utilities continue to be relocated around our four station areas in the Beltline and Downtown. If you’re walking, wheeling, or driving in the area highlighted on the map below, you may encounter construction activity and detours

Beltline east (4 St SE station area)

Throughout 2022, seven different utility providers coordinated the installation of underground utilities at 12 Avenue SW and Olympic Way SE. Work continues in this area with utility casing and deep utility relocation ongoing through 2023. 

Beltline west (Centre St S station area)

TELUS utility duct banks are being installed down Centre Street S., between 10 and 11 Avenue S.

Downtown (7 Ave SW and Eau Claire station areas)

ATCO, ENMAX and TELUS are relocating utilities and installing manholes beneath the roads and sidewalks.
