A lengthy report by Winnipeg city bureaucrats is setting out the size and cost of the rapid transit system’s second phase.
Phase 2 would expand the existing Southwest Transitway corridor, which runs from downtown to Jubilee Avenue, by 7.6 kilometres to the University of Manitoba.
The estimated cost of the project remains at $590 million but the plan no longer includes a huge sewer project between Cockburn Street and Calrossie Boulevard.
Some land drainage work connected to the sewer project will still be done as part of Southwest Transit Stage 2, the project’s formal name.
The rapid transit construction will include three overpasses, one underpass, a tunnel and two new rail bridges.
