Notice Description

  The City of Calgary Green Line Light Rail Transit Project - Shepard Phase

The City of Calgary’s light rail transit (“LRT”) network is wholly owned and operated by

The City and currently consists of 60km of track, 45 stations, and transports over 320,000

passengers on the average weekday.

In March 2018, Calgary city council approved a design-build-finance (“DBF”) delivery

model for construction of the first stage of construction of the Green Line LRT, referencing

prior approvals provided by council in June 2017 for the full 46 km LRT alignment and

station locations (the “Green Line LRT”). The Green Line LRT will operate as a low-floor

LRT line and will not be physically connected to The City’s existing Red and Blue LRT

lines. The first stage of construction approved by city council covers north central Calgary

through the downtown core to the southeast (the “Green Line Stage 1 LRT Project”).

The Green Line Stage 1 LRT Project will be procured in two separate phases as

described below.

The first phase comprises an approximate 16km long low-floor LRT line extending from

the proposed 4th Street station through the Inglewood/Ramsay community to 126th

Avenue Southeast (the “Shepard Phase”). It will include a combination of approximately

1 km of elevated guideway and 15km of at-grade sections as well as a maintenance and

storage facility (the “Maintenance and Storage Facility” or “MSF”). Other key structures

include 10 stations (two elevated stations and eight at-grade stations), numerous bridges,

three park-and-ride facilities with a total of approximately 1900 parking stalls. The

estimated cost of the Shepard Phase is estimated to be $1.2 billion (“Project Cost”)

The second phase extends the Shepard Phase from 4th Street Station to 16th Avenue

North (the “Centre City Phase”). The Centre City Phase and the light rail vehicle (“LRV”)

supply are excluded from the scope of this RFQ.
