SERVICE on the Canada Line between Bridgeport Station and Richmond–Brighouse Station will be temporarily impacted from January 16 to February 17, TransLink announced on Friday.

During this time period – Monday to Friday only – service will end at 9:30 p.m. (approximately four hours early), allowing construction crews to continue work on the new Capstan Station.

Regular service will resume on Saturday, February 18. 

These temporary impacts will mainly affect customers travelling to and from Bridgeport, Aberdeen, Lansdowne, and Richmond–Brighouse stations. 

Extra bus service will be available between Bridgeport and Richmond–Brighouse stations to provide customers with alternative service. Buses will stop at each impacted station and run approximately every 10 minutes. 

The temporary service changes are necessary to ensure the safety of workers and the public, as crews will be using a large crane to begin installing escalators and station roofs. The crane cannot be used safely above the track while trains are in operation.

The station remains on track to open later this year.
