The location of the stations serviced by CABR will be the responsibility of the local municipalities and the First Nations (Stoney Nakoda) serviced by CABR in partnership with the CABR proponents. This will be determined as part of the CABR Design Phase which is to be funded by the CABR proponents, the Canadian Infrastructure Bank and the Government of Alberta. The Design Phase is the next required step to determine project feasibility and will ultimately lead to an investment decision on the CABR project.
There would appear to be strong interest in locating a station at Hwy 1 and Hwy 40 for the reasons questioned. The final decision on that will be made in consultation with the Stoney Nakoda Nation.
