The province is putting just over 1-billion dollars towards the Valley Line West LRT in Edmonton.
131-million will be used on the Metro-Line…
And the money is all coming from the climate leadership plan….
Premier Rachel Notley says the Valley-Line investment–is going to lead to 20-thousand jobs in the province.
Mayor Don Iveson was pumped about it:
“When fully built—the Valley Line will help tens of thousands of Edmontonians move in and out of our downtown, enjoy our river valley, get to school or appointments and travel to neighbourhoods that haven’t been well served by public transit in the past. “
