Construction is ongoing, with the line scheduled to open to the public by the end of 2020. Bombardier will also lead the performance of the 30-year Operations, Maintenance and Rehabilitation scope of work for the entire Edmonton Valley Line System.

WT Partnership has been appointed to provide Independent Certifier services including specialist engineering review in conjunction with GHD Engineering.
