Last LRT full-day clo­sure on Sat­ur­day to al­low for Thales sig­nal test­ing

StarMetro Edmonton - - EDMONTON - KASH­MALA FIDA

Make your travel plans for Sat­ur­day ahead of time as the city is shut­ting the LRT sys­tem down for the day to al­low Thales to do sig­nal test­ing.

To ac­com­mo­date tran­sit rid­ers on Sat­ur­day, re­place­ment buses will be run­ning dur­ing LRT ser­vice hours.

Thales, a multi­na­tional com­pany that builds trans­port elec­tri­cal sys­tems, will be do­ing a full-day test on both the Metro Line and the Cap­i­tal Line in or­der to meet a Dec. 4 dead­line to re­store both lines to full ca­pac­ity.

Lines will not be run­ning at full ca­pac­ity right away be­cause the city will have to do its own au­dit test­ing af­ter­wards to make sure the sys­tem works.
