  • That's good. I did a reverse commute years ago. Lived DT and worked in the west end. Smooth sailing.

          Platform Length: 84 metres
          1 Flexity 7-module Car Length: 30.8 metres

          Platform capacity allows 2 7-module cars at over 550 "comfortable ridership capacity". Correct? Running at a max of 5-minute frequency at peak time?

          Again 5 segment cars are 30 meters, 7 segment cars are 42......

          The only conceivable way of getting a longer train would be to order a single long LRV

          • So in other words at peak hour its going to be like a wagon train with trains backed up from 156th street to 149th street heading West? Also what about vehicle traffic on SPR heading East at the SPR/156th street intersection? How are 2 lanes of Eastbound traffic going to merge into one lane Eastbound?

              • Pardon my rough sketch here so, is the train going to merge from 2 tracks into one as in my sketch here?

                • Vancouver, Toronto etc have natural barriers to growth that do wonders for driving up desirability and real estate prices in certain areas. Of course, sometimes man can duplicate natural effects.

                  • One of the worst things about Edmonton's traffic are the four-lane roads in the older neighbourhoods. Traffic definitely sped up when Fort Road was widened.

                    I think the city is going to have a hell of a surprise when traffic spills over to collector routes like 142 Street and 95 Avenue.

                    • 142 is not a collector. It's an arterial by any definition.

I have no problems with curiosity, and nor do 99 percent of people here. So ask away Reece.

                            Correct. There are 2 types of roads as defined by the City of Edmonton: Collector and local. I got an education about this when we did the Jasper Ave. Make over survey.

                            • Judging by how their performance, late, overbudget, ignoring many citizens, I wouldn't advise on trusting their material. See what other cities do and form opinions based on best practices.

                              Enough about the rant, I still think it should go over or under 149th up to the curve down 156th Street.

                              • What about the 2 lanes of traffic heading East along Stony Plain road at the 156th street intersection? What's going to happen with them?
