Surrey Langley SkyTrain is a 10-mile extension of the Expo Line from King George Station to Langley City Centre, and it is the first rapid transit expansion south of the Fraser River in 30 years.
When completed, the project will provide high-quality, low-cost transit to residents of Surrey, Langley, and the rest of Metro Vancouver. The Surrey Langley SkyTrain project is slated to begin major construction in 2024, a release said.
Three separate contracts are being used to complete the Surrey Langley SkyTrain project. The first contract, which comprises the elevated guideway, roads and utilities, and active transportation routes along the expansion, was issued to two finalist teams on Jan. 3, 2023. The contract will be awarded in late 2023.
The third contract is in the RFQ stage and is for the design and installation of SkyTrain track work as well as the design, installation, and integration of electrical systems. The shortlist of organizations that will move on to the RFP round will be released later this spring, a release said.
