10 Avenue Victoria Park Option Would Cost More Than Underground, So Why Isn’t the City Considering Underground?

We took a look at the costs associated with the newly proposed 10 Avenue Green Line option through Victoria Park and discovered that it may actually cost significantly more than an underground station on 12 Avenue SE. Given that the universal preference of local stakeholders is a 12 Avenue SE underground alignment, we believe the City should put this option on the table for consideration so it can be properly evaluated.

12 Avenue Underground Is The Best Option for The Beltline and Downtown Calgary

The Green Line LRT presents an exciting opportunity to make Calgary’s most dense and urban neighbourhoods better serviced by public transit. The best option for the Beltline comes down to the accessibility of the Green Line to all the people, businesses and important places in the Beltline, and the positive integration with existing travel modes in what is already a challenging environment for mobility. 

 

The Beltline Neighbourhoods Association is deeply concerned that 12 Avenue underground is being prematurely removed as an option and is asking the City to continue to investigate this potential alignment.
