CTrain Station Renovations

Wait, so it was used just last week, but only for 3-car trains?

Were 3-car trains the only ones running at the time?

Or did 4-car trains get diverted to the main platform?

I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS ūü•Ķ

It was $2 Tuesday at the Stampede, so crowds on 7 Avenue were huge midday. They had one three car train running between C Track and 7 Avenue to help take care of the large crowds. 

Just one train used it for a couple hours.

Ahhh cool. I went the previous Friday and am not an habitual Stampede-goer so didn't know that was a thing.

This is interesting. The bridge to Southwood at Anderson station will be closed for maintenance this coming weekend. To make up for the lost link, Calgary Transit will be operating a free shuttle.

Quote

On Saturday, Sepember 28 and Sunday, September 29, the pedestrian bridge connecting Anderson Station to the community of Southwood, will be closed for maintenance. 

A shuttle bus will connect customers between the community of Southwood and Anderson Station. The shuttle bus will stop at the following locations:

Anderson Station bus loop

A temporary stop near the corner of Sabrina Road and eastbound 110 Street S.W. 

This map shows the route and pick-up/drop-off locations of the shuttle. 

Shuttle service replacing the pedestrian bridge will be free to customers for the weekend.  Signs will be in place on site in the days leading up to the closure.  The pedestrian bridge will be reopened on Monday, September 30.  

And here’s the map described above:

No, theyre replacing the elevators.  There's not enough room inside the station building for any more elevators.

Plus isn't there room at both stations, for ground-level entryways and ramps, as well? It might just save some money on a permanent concrete ramp, gates and some stairs, versus another elevator.

In the case of Rundle, no. In the case of Marlborough, maybe, but we've seen what happened with Whitehorn and how many people have been hit there. Plus, i think adding more pedestrians to intersections and level crossings will only make congestion worse along 36th Street

This was considered during the platform expansion 5 or 6 years ago with consultations between Marlborough and Sunridge Malls as well as adjacent businesses and was ultimately shut down mainly due to various safety concerns (public safety, operational safety, etc) as well as logistical concerns (the intersection layout at 36 street and 5 avenue NE for example).

 

If you go back quite a few years, i successfully FOIPed the report and summarized on the board.

Brentwood's been undergoing pretty significant overhaul the last month or two, removing the rusty green railings and "roofs" on the ends of the overhead walkway (no idea if they'll be refurbished or replaced) and controlling corrosion on the concrete. They've also been painting the concrete white, but pretty sure that's just to help them see imperfections rather than to serve as a new surface coating. Here's a pic this morning of them removing the "roof" on the Co-op end. 

 

Really wish CT had some notice on their station upgrades page on the scope of this.
