Edmonton tunnelling crew breaks on through

Construction on Edmonton's Light Rapid Transit (LRT) system has reached a significant milestone, as tunnel workers on a section to the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology connected with the existing network by breaking through a wall at Churchill Station.

A tunneling crew has been working around the clock since January 2012, digging twin tunnels between 105 Avenue and Churchill Station through which LRT will start running in 2014.

Other work on the LRT system includes construction of all surface track for the North LRT and foundation work for the Grant MacEwan, Kingsway/Royal Alex and NAIT LRT stations. Development of the stations will continue over the winter months.

The $755 million project was jointly funded by the Government of Canada, the Government of Alberta and the City of Edmonton.
