A peek into West LRT's future route

The people at West LRT have created a neat animated video showing the CTrain route  upon completion in 2012 as it meanders along Bow Trail from Calgary’s downtown to 69 St. S.W.

Its route begins at 7th Ave. and 11th St. downtown and pushes along an overpass to 11th Ave. S.W. The video then shows Sunalta’s elevated platform and then the route under Crowchild Trail, as it edges past 26th St. Station, past Shaganappi Golf Course and underground to Westbrook Station. The Ctrain emerges beside 17th Ave. S.W., before stopping at 45th St. S.W. and then on to Sirocco Station. The LRT, moving at a leisurely pace to a really, really mellow new age tune, eventually makes its way to 69th St. Station where it comes to a much needed rest.

Even if you’re not living in the Calgary’s southwest, the video offers insight into what our city will look like a few years down the road. The video was made by Riddell Kurczaba Architecture Engineering Interior Design Ltd.
