Train Testing and Energization of Overhead Wires on 83 Street to Muttart Stop

Energization, Noise, Notice, Testing

September 7, 2021 – Starting on or about Friday, September 10th, 2021, TransEd will be expanding train testing and energization of the overhead wires on 83 Street from Argyll Road to the new Muttart Stop on 98 Avenue. Energization of this segment will mean that train testing will be occurring intermittently in this area.  Trains will be escorted by crews at all times during this testing phase.

As construction progresses, the overhead wires will be energized on a gradual basis in each area of the 13-kilometre alignment beginning in Mill Woods and ending in Downtown.

For your safety, overhead wires should always be considered energized when strung from power pole to power pole.  


  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
  • Coming into contact with live overhead wires can lead to serious injury or death. Keep all high reaching devices such as ladders, drones, and remote-controlled planes away from the energized overhead wires.
  • Use designated pedestrian walkways and only cross the tracks at designated crossings.
  • Always follow the direction of construction personnel and flaggers.
  • Always follow traffic and pedestrian signs and

To accommodate this work, the public will be impacted in the following areas:

  • There will be occasional noise associated with this work, including train bell dings to alert the public of the moving train.
  • There will be occasional flashing lights emitting from the trains.
  • There will be minimal traffic disruption with occasional train crossings at the roadways and intersections that cross the LRT tracks.
  • Flaggers will be on-site where required to ensure traffic flow and the safety of pedestrians
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained.
