The City Council of Edmonton, Alberta, last week approved CA$333 million of municipal funding for the Capital Line South light-rail transit (LRT) extension from Century Park to the Heritage Valley Park and Ride.

The city has received CA$1.47 billion in previous funding commitments from both the federal and provincial governments for the LRT expansion. The Capital Line funding application is currently with the federal government for review and submission to the federal Treasury Board by the fall.

"With this commitment, we are one big step closer to the city’s vision to expand LRT service to all sectors of the city by 2040,” said Adam Laughlin, deputy city manager of integrated infrastructure services, in a press release. "This municipal contribution will allow us to start preparing the project in anticipation of federal funding confirmation."
