West LRT test trains are on track
If you’ve been eagerly anticipating a shortened commute to Mount Royal University on the new west LRT line, good news – the project entered the final phase on May 15 when the first two test trains hit the tracks at the Sunalta station.
The test trains, four in total, will be riding the rails all summer, slowly moving further west as the stations near completion. Though there is still at least eight months (probably more) before the line is complete and ready for use in early 2013, the start of the testing phase is a good indication that the project is almost ready to go.
