TransLink opens second round of public engagement with new Surrey Langley SkyTrain project details

TransLink has opened a new round of public engagement on the proposed Surrey Langley SkyTrain project, and rapid transit on 104 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

Following direction from the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation in July, TransLink is moving forward with project development on the proposed Surrey Langley SkyTrain. While current available funding would enable an extension to 166 St in Fleetwood, subject to business case approval by senior governments, TransLink has been tasked with planning for the full 16-kilometre line to 203 St in Langley City Centre.

This stage of engagement provides the public with new details about the project, including the location of the proposed SkyTrain guideway along Fraser Highway – where it is north, south, or centre-running. Several factors were carefully considered when deciding where the elevated guideway will be constructed including minimizing:

  • Footprint impacts to environmentally sensitive areas;
  • Property impacts;
  • Project-related costs;
  • The number of times the guideway crosses over Fraser Highway;
  • Traffic impacts; and
  • Construction impacts.

In this phase of engagement, we are also asking for feedback on:

  • Access to the SkyTrain and its integration with other modes of transportation, such as walking, cycling, and driving;
  • Topics of review in the Environmental Screening Review (ESR);
  • Rapid transit on 104 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

Feedback will help to inform the project design.

Until November 17, we invite the public to take the online survey or attend one of five open houses.

  • November 7 – Langley City Hall, 20399 Douglas Crescent, Langley City (3-8pm)
  • November 12 – Hope Community Church, 18625 Fraser Hwy, Surrey (3-8pm)
  • November 13 – Surrey Sport and Leisure Complex 16555 Fraser Hwy, Surrey (3-8pm)
  • November 14 – Kwantlen Polytechnic University, 12666 72 Avenue, Surrey (1-6pm)
  • November 16 – Central City Shopping Centre, 10153 King George Blvd, Surrey (11am-4pm)

    Why not fix the problem with the contract before you report this stuff.

    Would it be possible to plan ahead for a line in a rotated “7” shape around King George Station, just like the 3-way at Lougheed Station? Said line would include the already proposed Fleetwood route in its Fraser Highway portion.

    The other portion would cover the original Newton LRT route from King George Station plus an extra bit of track to 68th Ave or 64th Ave. The reason for the extra track would be to avoid interruptions from the King George railway crossing – and heck, on the way out of Surrey Central today, I saw a freight train had stopped on the Highway 17 railway crossing!

    How about instead of more stations, we enforce proper courtesy, and good conduct among passengers with BCRTC Staff. I’m getting real tired of having to literally fight people to get off the Skytrain at Scott Road every morning with people not understanding, you need to wait for everyone to get off the train before you get on.
