LRT construction and street-scaping works will require the street to be closed from edge-to-edge.
While Bus Rapid Transit systems could be constructed more gradually and SkyTrain extensions take up less space, Surrey’s construction of an LRT system will…
- Require significant reconstruction of the layout of the street,
- Require underground digging to remove sewers and utilities,
- Double or triple transit times during the construction period,
- Create few travel time savings after construction is complete.
