design and construction of 5.7 kilometers of new network

A 5.7 km extension of an existing fully automated Skytrain system in Vancouver, BC.

The Broadway Subway extension will run below a major arterial route for the city and the second largest business corridor in the province. It is flanked by residential areas, schools, the city hall, and Vancouver’s largest hospital. Once in service, the trip from VCC–Clark Station to Arbutus Station will take 11 minutes, saving the average transit commuter almost 30 minutes a day.

The extension connects to the end of an existing elevated track at VCC–Clark station, with 700 m of elevated guideway before continuing through a tunnel approximately 5 km long beneath Broadway Street to a terminus at Arbutus Street.

The six new underground stations will connect communities and neighborhoods to make it easier and more affordable to live, work, and access services along the Broadway Corridor. These stations will be fully integrated with existing bus services and other SkyTrain lines across Vancouver.
