THE City of Surrey has welcomed the provincial government’s launch of the Surrey Langley SkyTrain procurement process.
“It has been a long time since there has been new rapid transit in Surrey and the province’s announcement of the procurement process shows the high priority given to Surrey Langley SkyTrain,” said Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum on Wednesday.
“Given the timeline for procurement, I have no doubt that we will be seeing shovels in the ground next year. I want to commend and thank the provincial government for how quickly they are moving on Surrey Langley SkyTrain.”
The City of Surrey has been conducting preparatory work on Fraser Highway, which includes the widening of the centre median to accommodate guideway construction of Surrey Langley SkyTrain.
The 16-kilometer route will bring rapid transit to the growing communities of Fleetwood, Clayton and Cloverdale.
Surrey Langley SkyTrain is the first rapid transit expansion south of the Fraser in 30 years and will take commuters from King George Station to Langley in 22 minutes.
