Track maintenance in Surrey to impact Expo Line service

Track maintenance in Surrey to impact Expo Line service

The entrance to Scott Road Station as the SkyTrain arrives

Heads up SkyTrain riders travelling to, from, or within Surrey! We are completing track maintenance along the Expo Line near Scott Road Station during two five-day periods in October.

Work is scheduled to take place first from Friday, Oct. 7 to Tuesday, Oct. 11, then again from Friday, Oct. 21 to Tuesday, Oct. 25. During these periods, one of tracks will be out of commission, so the SkyTrain will operate using the other track to travel between New Westminster and Scott Road stations.

Read on to find out how your commute may be affected.

Travelling to, from, and within Surrey

Crews will be working on one side of the guideway at a time, around the clock, for five consecutive days. We’ve scheduled most of the work over weekends and a statutory holiday to minimize impacts to commuters as best possible.

Allow 20 minutes of extra travel time and expect trains to wait at or outside of stations longer than normal around Columbia, Scott Road, and Gateway stations. This allows trains to clear the single-track area and to better distribute customers between trains. We’ve added extra trains between Columbia and Scott Road stations to help with congestion.

Platform information displays will show the countdown to departure. As well, extra SkyTrain staff will be available to assist you at affected stations in Surrey and New Westminster as needed.

Travelling elsewhere on the Expo Line

Allow a few extra minutes travel time for all other Expo Line trips.

Service between Columbia and Production Way–University will run at close to normal frequencies, but the exact times will change. During peak hours, additional trains will operate between Edmonds and Waterfront to provide normal peak service frequency.

Check electronic signs at station entrances and on platforms for current train information. Additional SkyTrain staff will be on hand to assist in directing customers as needed.
