Providing a functional planning study for the high-priority Green Line LRT route
The City of Calgary, Alberta had needed to extend its rail transit service to provide the northern community with safe and efficient access to downtown. Dubbed the Green Line North LRT project, the next new LRT line in Calgary’s rapid transit network will transport passengers from North Point to downtown to Seton in the southeast.
In collaboration with Hatch, our team of transportation experts was brought on to complete the initial functional studies for the downtown route options and north segments. Our on-going scope of work included a range of engineering and environmental services, urban planning, and public engagement.
As part of the initial functional planning stage, we worked to support the geotechnical investigation program in close contact with The City of Calgary Parks, Urban Conservation, and Urban Forestry. We also provided regulatory services for the completion of a Water Act application in advance of in-river drilling within the Bow River channel, which involved an assessment of the aquatic environment and fish habitat in accordance with the DFO’s pathway of effects. The goal? To ensure that any potential impacts to natural areas, wildlife, and trees are reduced or eliminated.
Throughout this partnership, we have undertaken a Preliminary Natural Site Assessment (PNSA), Tree Inventory and Protection Plans (TPP), and wildlife surveys to contribute to the functional planning stage.
