The space required by an at-grade LRT will require hundreds of property takes.
An estimated 214 property takes will be required on Fraser Highway alone (including at least 20 full takes)
- LRT’s at-grade footprint is more than twice as much as a SkyTrain guideway
- Widened roadways will be more difficult to cross from end to end
SkyTrain’s flexibility can allow for less disruption of existing properties.
This example is on the Evergreen Line.
