TransLink opens second round of public engagement with new Surrey Langley SkyTrain project details

November 01, 2019

Take the online survey until November 17 or attend one of five open houses

NEW WESTMINSTER - TransLink has opened a new round of public engagement on the proposed Surrey Langley SkyTrain project, and rapid transit on 104 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

Following direction from the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation in July, TransLink is moving forward with project development on the proposed Surrey Langley SkyTrain. While current available funding would enable an extension to 166 St in Fleetwood, subject to business case approval by senior governments, TransLink has been tasked with planning for the full 16-kilometre line to 203 St in Langley City Centre.

This stage of engagement provides the public with new details about the project, including the location of the proposed SkyTrain guideway along Fraser Highway – where it is north, south, or centre-running. Several factors were carefully considered when deciding where the elevated guideway will be constructed including minimizing:

  • Footprint impacts to environmentally sensitive areas;
  • Property impacts;
  • Project-related costs;
  • The number of times the guideway crosses over Fraser Highway;
  • Traffic impacts; and
  • Construction impacts.

In this phase of engagement, we are also asking for feedback on:

  • Access to the SkyTrain and its integration with other modes of transportation, such as walking, cycling, and driving;
  • Topics of review in the Environmental Screening Review (ESR);
  • Rapid transit on 104 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

Feedback will help to inform the project design.

Until Nov. 17, we invite the public to take the online survey or attend one of five open houses.
