Health Sciences/Jubilee Station is an LRT station on the Capital Line and south terminus of the Metro Line in Edmonton, Alberta. It is a ground-level station located at 114 Street at 83 Avenue on the University of Alberta's main campus.

History[edit]

Health Sciences Station opened on January 3, 2006,[2] and was the second LRT station built on the south side of the North Saskatchewan River. It was also the first above ground station to be built since Clareview Station which opened in 1981 and the first station built as part of the Capital Line's South expansion which added five new stations and 7.8 km of track to the system by 2010.

Station layout[edit]

The station has a 124-metre long centre loading platform that can accommodate two five-car LRT trains at the same time, with one train on each side of the platform. The platform is exactly nine metres wide.[3][4]

An enclosed pedway system that connects the station with the Edmonton Clinic Health Academy, Kaye Edmonton Clinic and University of Alberta Hospital opened in June 2013.[5][6]
