SkyTrain for Surrey, not LRT!
February 5, 2019 – Surrey, BC
We are pleased to report that TransLink has launched its Surrey-Langley SkyTrain WEBSITE to facilitate informing the community about the project!
Visit the website now: https://surreylangleyskytrain.ca/
The website contains a new route map and numerous official renderings depicting our future Fraser Highway SkyTrain stations. It also includes brief outlines of the project vision, benefits and route as well as a frequently-asked-questions (FAQ) page.
According to the FAQ page, the current planning work being done for SkyTrain includes design requirements, costing, public engagement, First Nations engagement, an environmental review, municipal partnership agreements with the City of Surrey, City of Langley and Township of Langley, and drafting a business case for senior government approval.
Be sure to subscribe to their mailing list (on the contacts page) for official project updates!
The City of Surrey has also launched a new page on its website at:
Future riders in Surrey and Langley are ready and willing to take SkyTrain when it comes, and SkyTrain for Surrey is proud to have played a significant role in building public support for the SkyTrain extension that is now becoming a reality.
SkyTrain for Surrey is the community organization that advocated for the Surrey-Langley SkyTrain extension, and continues to push for high-quality rapid transit projects in Surrey and Langley. We began as a petition calling for the scrapping of a street-level LRT proposal, which eventually amassed more than 6,000 signatures, and later contributed to making SkyTrain an election issue as a registered third-party advertiser. SkyTrain for Surrey continues to call for high-quality projects that offer a positive return-on-investment and recognize the rapidly increasing demand for transit.
