South LRT to Century Park
Southgate & Century Park Stations Now Open
The South LRT to Century Park opened to service in Edmonton in April 2010.
Passengers can now travel 20.3 kilometres to 15 stations in 34 minutes by LRT from Clareview in north Edmonton to Century Park in south Edmonton. Efficient and environmentally responsible, LRT service transports commuters quickly and quietly and takes cars off roads. For more information about LRT in Edmonton see the LRT Network Plan.
SLRT Warning Bells
Many people living near or commuting through the South LRT corridor on 111 Street are reporting that the warning bells at LRT intersections are too loud. The City is aware of the problem and working on a solution.
Warning bells are a necessary safety feature required to safeguard against collisions involving trains and automobiles, pedestrians, cyclists, etc. The City’s Urban Traffic Noise Policy requires the overall impact of LRT operations, including warning bells, to be no louder than 65 decibels adjusted (dBA) over a 24-hour period. Noise modeling at residential property lines along 111 Street has indicated average sound levels below 65 dBA, which is not loud enough to require sound barriers along the South LRT. However, the City is in the process of testing noise levels throughout the 111th Street corridor. Please check back here for results once tests are complete.
SLRT to Heritage Valley
Plans exist to extend the LRT another 4.5 km to 127th Street & Ellerslie Road, but the project is many years away from being built. More details.
Park & Ride at Century Park
The 1,230 stall Park & Ride at Century Park LRT Station is now open. It operates free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis. The City is considering a pilot project to allow some parking stalls to be reserved for a fee. The majority of parking stalls would remain available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Check the Edmonton Transit System website for updates.
Platform Extensions at McKernan/Belgravia & Health Sciences
Construction to extend the pedestrian platforms at these two stations by 23 metres to accommodate 5-car trains is nearly complete. The plaforms at both stations are completely open to the public.
Safety around the South LRT remains a top priority. New transportation infrastructure requires extra precautions for everyone travelling the SLRT corridor. Please review the City's TraXSafe program.
