Rapid population and economic growth in Alberta over the last 10 years has made a high-speed rail link between Edmonton and Calgary feasible, says a new study by a transportation group.
"The corridor now has the critical mass to support a high-speed rail system," Art Smith, chairman of the Van Horne Institute which conducted the study, said in a news release Tuesday. The study says the rail line could be established in two ways: by using the existing Canadian Pacific Railway freight corridor (at an estimated cost of $1.7 billion), or by building a new corridor, possibly along Highway 2 (at a cost of $3.4 billion).
The Calgary-based group says there is enough demand to support a service linking the downtowns of Alberta's two largest cities. The trip would take roughly two hours using high-speed trains, such as Bombardier's JetTrain.
