Valley Line West LRT Project Awarded CCPPP Gold Award

November 9, 2021

The Valley Line West project team has won the Gold Award for Project Development from the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships  (CCPPP). The CCPPP presents this award annually to projects that demonstrate excellence and innovation in P3s. 

The award ceremony will be held virtually on November 17th.

All of the award winners showcase how partners are continuing to adapt and refine the ‘made-in-Canada’ P3 model to create, deliver, operate and maintain innovative and transformative infrastructure for their communities.

About the Project


This $2.67-billion, 14-kilometre light-rail extension is the second stage of the City of Edmonton’s Valley Line. The design-build-finance project, which entered its RFP phase and reached financial close during the pandemic in 2020, bundles together design, system integration and construction into one contract. It also is the first to embed a community benefits agreement for a major capital project in Edmonton. With its 14 street-level stops and two elevated stations, the extension will help connect city neighbourhoods and reduce congestion, with LRT stops downtown, at all major city hospitals and the city’s largest tourist attraction, West Edmonton Mall. Once the west line is operational, both stages of the Valley Line will operate contiguously with no transfer points or perceived break in service for passengers despite the fact both are being delivered using different P3 consortiums, noted the awards committee.

ISL is proud to have played a role in this exciting project for the City of Edmonton. 

Congratulations to the entire project team and all partners! More information on all award recipients can be found here.
