Rail replacement work begins in the Royal Oak and Edmonds area on Oct. 2

During affected dates and times in the Royal Oak and Edmonds area, Expo Line trains will use one track in both directions at Royal Oak and Edmonds stations. Expo Line trains will operate between Waterfront and King George stations.

As part of keeping our system in a state of good repair, we are replacing 5,000 linear metres of running rail at four main locations close to Metrotown, Main Street–Science World, Stadium–Chinatown and Waterfront stations.

Starting on the evening of Monday, October 2, rail replacement work begins in the Royal Oak and Edmonds area, resulting in modified evening service. The affected dates and times are:

  • Monday, October 2 to Wednesday, October 4 (from 9:30 p.m. until the end of service)

During the affected dates and times, Expo Line trains will operate between Waterfront and King George stations. Additional trains will operate between Waterfront and Metrotown stations, providing near-normal service between Waterfront and Metrotown.

Trains will use one track in both directions at Royal Oak and Edmonds stations. Expo Line passengers should allow for 15-20 minutes extra travel time.

If you are travelling to Production Way–University, Lougheed Town Centre, Braid or Sapperton, you’ll need transfer to the Special SkyTrain Service (see map) at New Westminster, Columbia or Commercial–Broadway stations.

The Canada Line is unaffected by this work.

Customers are advised to watch destination displays and listen for train destination announcements. We thank you for your patience as we complete this essential work.
