  • They'll be backed up, just like the rest of the routes going eastbound from the west end headed for the core.

    • That's if Stony plain road is a for lrt (tram) only to 156th street. Eastbound traffic before the 156th street intersection will need to be routed North on 156th street to 107 if non lrt/tram commuters want to go to the core etc.

      Who's hair brained idea was this?

      • This will be forever known as "Mandel's Folly" or "Mandel's Revenge"?

        • Rather than building this line south down 156 street, they should continue the line heading West on Stony Plain Road to Mayfield Common, or beyond that. But then have a line from Lewis Estates and West Edmonton Mall to head East to South Campus.

            • The routing has been decided it is getting built as is. Move on.

                  Just like the route was decided in 2008, things can and will change. Discuss at will.

                    • Carry on... just don't hold your breath. Meanwhile I will check this thread again when we're done dreaming about route changes and arguing about low floor vs high floor LRT *eye-roll*

                      • There are probably some people in Edmonton who will drive no matter what. If an LRT train can take 550 people every five minutes, one traffic lane will take about 300 cars, or perhaps 400 people.

                        • I forgot we are pass the dream phase of this line. We can't bring up anything that would benefit it or can't change it what so ever. The blueprints are printed and concrete is on the way. Just deal with the problems to come.

                          • Just like with the Nait line. City of Edmonton still hasn't figured out what option to go with at Glenrose.

                              There's bringing up problems, and there's beating a dead horse.
