Hi buzzer readers,
As you may know, Scott Road has been in the process of getting upgraded to improve safety and accessibility at the station. Today, we celebrated the completion of construction with the Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, Minister of National Revenue, B.C.’s Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone, TransLink’s own Marcella Szel, board chair, and Ian Jarvis, CEO with an event at the station.
Thanks to the recent upgrades to the bus exchange and parking lot completed over the last year, station access is safer and easier for customers who travel by car and bus. Accessibility has also been markedly improved following the installation of the elevator at the west-side of the station in the spring of 2012.
Scott Road Station is the first of seven stations on the Expo Line to be upgraded by TransLink with funding from the federal and provincial governments. These upgrades will ensure the rapid transit system meets the needs of passengers and the region for years to come.
The full press release is available here.
Thanks for your patience during construction!
