Canadian LRT/RT projects U/C

Since we have a few LRT/rapid transit projects under construction right now and some more planned in the future, I suggest we make a specific thread where users can post construction updates of listed projects instead of doing it in one big transit thread with other modes.

Here's the list.

Under construction

1. Edmonton - NAIT line (ETS) - 3 stations - 3.3km - 2015
2. Vancouver - Evergreen line (TransLink) - 6 stations - 11km - 2016
3. Kitchener-Waterloo - Ion (Grand River Transit) - 16 stations - 19km - 2017
4. Toronto - Yonge/Spadina Extension (TTC) - 6 stations - 8.6km - 2017
5. Ottawa - Confederation line (OC Transpo) - 13 stations - 12.5km - 2018
6. Toronto - Eglinton Crosstown (Metrolinx) - 25 stations - 19km - 2020

The only one currently U/C in that group is the KW line. The others will be added as soon as construction begins.

That's "ion" - No caps.

BRT isn't part of light rail. It's better if this thread focuses on LRTs or rapid transit. Commuter rail and BRTs can be discussed in the transit thread.

BRTs can qualify as rapid transit, IMO.

But I would nonetheless vote for this thread to be restricted to rail rapid transit projects, excluding BRTs, buses, and commuter rail transit.

Eglinton LRT will be 2020, and Spadina will be 2017 BTW. your opening dates for those two are both incorrect.

Thanks. The US section has a similar thread with a list, so I thought it was a good idea to do the same with our rail projects.

Does Calgary's platform extension (in preparation of 4-car trains) project count? Jeez, this is the first year in 15 years that Calgary doesn't have any rail transit UC.

We are talking about actual rail extensions here though, not platform renovations...
