Temporary Transit Centre and Information Session

At the Summerlea Community League Board Meeting on April 20, we were visited by representatives from City of Edmonton to discuss the temporary relocation of the transit centre from West Edmonton Mall to a portion of the overflow parking lot along 90th Avenue.

The anticipated start date is May 10, and the relocation will be for 5-6 years while the construction for the Valley Line LRT along 87th Avenue is underway. The transit zone will be fenced off and there will be full security monitoring. View the presentation.

Register for the Virtual Information Session

To get answers to your questions about the construction of the transit centre, register to attend the virtual information session taking place on Wednesday, May 5, from noon to 1 p.m.

Note that the session will be recorded and will be available online at edmonton.ca/ValleyLineWest for individuals who are unable to attend. 


If you have questions or concerns about the construction of the temporary transit centre, you can contact LRTprojects@edmonton.ca or 780-496-4874.

Construction Pre-Works, Community Engagement

Summerlea board members Christine Belter and Rusk Redmond regularly attend the meetings of the City of Edmonton’s LRT working group to receive the latest information and updates about the Valley Line West LRT and everything related to it. Here are the messages from the most recent meeting:

  • This year’s activities include the preliminary boreholes and site laydown.
  • The temporary transit centre, which is planned for the overflow parking lot along 90th Avenue, is a City of Edmonton project (not in the scope of the Marigold consortium who are building the LRT).
  • The City LRT communications is willing to give us two information sessions in May for Summerlea residents. They are proposing the last week in April, so stay tuned.

The latest construction notice details the pre-works starting on March 29 on 87 Avenue, 156 Street, Stony Plain Road, 104 Avenue, and 102 Avenue.
