SURREY Mayor Doug McCallum on Thursday welcomed BC NDP Leader John Horgan’s promise to fully fund the Surrey-Langley SkyTrain project.
In a statement, McCallum said: “It is no secret that investment in rapid transit has not come remotely close to keeping pace with the phenomenal growth of Surrey. I wholeheartedly welcome and fully support John Horgan and the BC NDP’s promise to fully fund SkyTrain through Surrey all the way to Langley.”
He added: “The Surrey-Langley SkyTrain project has long been, and has recently been reaffirmed, as a top priority by the Mayors’ Council. The BC NDP’s promise to build this line all the way to Langley makes good sense. This project is shovel ready, will create well-paying jobs immediately, and will take more cars off the road with the built-in ridership from the growing cities of Surrey and Langley.”
