Calgary’s Green Line light rail train (LRT) project had some issues through the planning stages, but now that funding has been confirmed, a new website has been launched at calgary.ca/greenline.

The new site offers updated information about the project history and procurement and provides useful tidbits for businesses and future riders. The economic, community and city-wide benefits are also spelled out. Commuters will find the construction notice updates extremely handy.
