Affected routes: Red Line
Affected stations: Sunnyside, SAIT/AUArts/Jubilee, Lions Park
Affected service hours: all day Saturday, September 23 through Sunday, September 24
What to expect:
The stations will NOT be fully closed, this is a partial closure.
The outbound tracks will be closed at Sunnyside, SAIT/AUArts/Jubilee, and Lions Park Stations starting Saturday, September 23 until the very early hours of Monday, September 25.
This means the trains will only be using one track at these stations for travel in both directions. Whether you’re heading northbound towards Tuscany, or southbound towards City Centre/Somerset-Bridlewood, you will need to catch the train on the inbound platform.
At Sunnyside and SAIT/AUArts/Jubilee Stations, that will be the west platform.
At Lions Park Station, that will be the south platform.
Full CTrain service will be back up and running again on Monday, September 25.
Why are we doing this?
We know closures can have an impact on your travel, which is why we try to keep them as minimally disruptive as possible. That’s also why they’re so important – because doing preventative work and maintenance now can ensure we’re providing Calgarians with a safe, reliable, and efficient transit system.
When looking at the work that needs to be done at (or between) specific stations, we always try to see if closing just one side of the tracks is a safe, effective, and available option. Also known as “single tracking”, this type of closure allows us to complete the important work while also keeping train traffic moving!
This weekend’s project includes demolition of the SAIT +15, as well as other projects as time allows.
Thank you for your patience during these closures!
