City planners share potential challenges at future Moodie LRT stop

City councillors showed confidence during a February announcement revealing a proposed light rail transit stop on Moodie Drive. But that was somewhat tempered in a public meeting about western LRT expansion in March.

More than 75 people gathered at Maki House in the Crystal Beach neighbourhood to hear city staff present a sober report on the city’s plan for a Moodie light-rail stop, and its backup plan, in the event that a Moodie Drive stop isn’t feasible.

The city’s plan to extend light rail to Moodie by 2023 as part of LRT Stage 2 hinges somewhat on its ability to find maintenance and storage space west of Bayshore station, planner Charles Mueller said during the March 22 meeting.
