Developing Edmonton’s public transit through creative and sustainable design.
The Metro Line Northwest LRT is an 11-kilometre extension of the existing end-of-line station at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology to a new terminus at Campbell Road near the border with the City of St. Albert. As part of the City of Edmonton Owner’s Engineering team, GEC is responsible for the urban integration, public realm design, station architecture (nine stations, with a mix of at-grade, elevated, and trenched configurations), utility complex design, and coordination of the landscape design.
To guide the design, GEC developed the sustainable urban integration guideline (SUI) for high-floor LRT in Edmonton, which has since been adopted by The City for use in all future high-floor design and upgrades. In addition, GEC has been retained to update The City’s LRT Technical Design Guideline for high-floor passenger infrastructure throughout the system
