Edmonton Valley Line Light Rail Project (Phase 1), Alberta, Canada
The Valley Line is a vital part of the City of Edmonton’s transportation plan. It will help cater for the demands of Canada’s second fastest-growing city, which is expected to increase in size by 50 per cent by 2040. This is the largest infrastructure project in the city of Edmonton ever undertaken. The project will be delivered using the Public-Private Partnership (P3) model.
Bechtel is the lead partner for the design and construction of the project. Bechtel invested equity and helped to secure financing for the project, and will assist in the provision of the operations and maintenance.
