Does early end to testing mean all systems go for NAIT LRT?

Mayor Don Iveson is hoping an early end to testing of the signal system for the LRT Metro Line this weekend is a good sign.

“It looked like testing was going well on the weekend,” he told Edmonton AM host Mark Connolly. “It wrapped up early which I hope is an encouraging sign, but really waiting to see what what our safety and operational experts have to say.”

Those experts are expected to announce their conclusions Monday afternoon.

The much-delayed Metro Line is scheduled to open in May.

The line, which connects NAIT with the downtown Churchill Station, was originally slated to open in April 2014, but has been delayed six times because of problems integrating the line’s signalling with the existing LRT system.
