A catalyst for city-shaping and the development of transit oriented communities, the Valley Line LRT will eventually stretch from Edmonton's southeast all the way to the west end through Downtown. Twenty-seven extra kilometres of light rail transit means Edmontonians will be able to further connect to the places where they live, work, and play. DIALOG, as part of the ConnectEd Transit Partnership (CTP), is acting as the Owner’s Engineer for the Valley Line LRT to provide project/program management, consulting services (structural, mechanical and electrical engineering, urban design, architectural design) for preliminary design, engineering services for the procurement of two P3 consortia, and design reviews.

The Southeast stage is set to open in 2021, and the West stage is set for 2027.
Each step in the phased process towards redevelopment will ultimately enhance the community and enhance the city.
Don Iveson, Mayor of Edmonton

Tawatinâ Bridge

Plenty of green elements are incorporated into the design, with added bike lanes that connect to the city's existing network. Conserving and uniting the city's ample greenspaces while promoting enjoyment of these outdoor amenities along the length of the new LRT were a priority.

Enhanced landscaping and streetscaping help create an enjoyable natural environment. Detailed design focuses on colour and texture rather than repetition, and is attractive and interesting for people walking by. Wherever possible, organic elements such as wood and stone are used.
