Station’s southern entrance to close and bus stops to relocate during construction
THE first major phase of construction on Brentwood Town Centre SkyTrain Station will begin on June 20. These upgrades will improve the station’s accessibility, capacity, and customer flow. Once complete, the station will better integrate with surrounding bus service, Brentwood Mall, and nearby residential buildings, according to TransLink.
To allow for the upgrades to move forward safely, the southern entrance of the Millennium Line station will close for approximately one year. The northern entrance of the station will remain open, and customers will be able to access SkyTrain service throughout the duration of construction.
Bus stops near the station will be relocated to ensure safety of customers. Bus Bays 4 and 5 which serve Routes 25,123, and N9 will be relocated to the west side of Willingdon Avenue.
When complete in 2024, the station upgrades will include:
- A new elevator at the street-level of the station’s southern entrance
- An expanded mezzanine with more fare gates and customer space
- Two new escalators
- Replaced staircases with enclosed glass to provide protection from the weather
- Additional real-time passenger information displays
- Improved lighting
- A new public art installation
This $32.6 million investment is part of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) with contributions from the Government of Canada and TransLink.
- Brentwood Town Centre Station will be the first Millennium Line station to receive upgrades since the Millennium Line first opened in 2002.
- Approximately 4,500 people boarded SkyTrain at Brentwood Town Centre Station each weekday in fall 2021.
- It is one of the busiest stations on the Millennium Line and will likely grow due to rapid residential development nearby.
- Brentwood Town Centre Station is a transfer point for seven different bus routes including routes 25, 123, 130, 134, 136, 222, and the N9.
- These routes connect Brentwood with UBC, New Westminster, Metrotown, North Vancouver, Coquitlam, and with late night bus service to downtown Vancouver.
- Bays 4 and 5 serving routes 25, 123, and the N9 will be relocated west of Willingdon Avenue while the southern station entrance is closed.
