The Valley Line West LRT- Updates

Marigold Infrastructure Partners started construction for Valley Line West in 2021. It will take 5 to 6 years to complete. Below are links to project plans relevant to the construction of this transit line.  

Marigold will be required to follow the construction hours outlined in the City’s Community Standards Bylaw.

Monday-Saturday: 7am-9pm

Sunday and Holidays: 9am-7pm 

There are occasions when our contractor can apply for permits to complete work outside of these hours.

The contractor will be responsible for ensuring all noise complies with the City’s Community Standards Bylaw. If construction noise levels exceed the maximum limits (65 dBA, which is similar to the volume of a normal conversation) the contractor will have to apply for an exemption to complete the work.
