SkyBridge upgrades to impact Expo Line service

EXPO Line customers travelling between Surrey and New Westminster are being asked to build in extra travel time as TransLink continues to upgrade parts along the SkyTrain tracks of the SkyBridge. 

During construction, Expo Line trains will use one side of the SkyBridge tracks only, so crews can work safely on the opposite tracks. 

Work is planned for the following dates: 

SkyBridge Upgrades

July 31 – August 7

August 13 – 20

Impacts between Scott Road Station and Columbia Station during all service hours Impacts between Scott Road Station and New Westminster Station during all service hours

 

Customers travelling through affected stations should plan for around 20 minutes of extra travel time to account for any delays. Customers travelling between New Westminster and Surrey are encouraged to travel outside of peak hours, if possible, to reduce overcrowding. 

Additional SkyTrain staff will be on site to assist customers at affected stations. Customers will see signage and digital wayfinding in stations to help navigate these changes to their commutes during construction. 

The upcoming work will replace essential rail components that have carried more than five million trains since 1990. This is the final phase of the SkyBridge expansion joint replacement work that began in 2021, according to TransLink.
