McKernan/Belgravia LRT Station
Originally, the proposed name for the station was the 76 Avenue Station; however both the Belgravia Community League and the McKernan Community League wanted the name to reflect their communities. After much discussion by the McKernan Community League Historian, Ed Stover, City Council voted to change the name to McKernan/Belgravia in October 2006.
The station was officially opened on April 25, 2009, with regular service commencing on April 26, 2009.
The station has a 123 metre long centre loading platform that can accommodate two five-car trains at the same time, one on each side of the platform. The platform is six metres wide, narrow by current Edmonton LRT design guidelines.
A pedestrian underpass, included as part of the station design, allows passengers and other pedestrian traffic to easily cross 114 Street.
