New Round of Public Engagement
Please note that this round of public engagement has been postponed and will take place after the provincial election.
September 18, 2020 –TransLink has started a new round of public engagement on the Surrey Langley SkyTrain project. Virtual engagement runs between September 18 and October 4, 2020 and includes an online survey, telephone town hall, and webinar.
We’re working with TransLink to integrate the widening of Fraser Highway from 140 St to 148 St with the Surrey Langley SkyTrain project. Simultaneous construction will minimize impacts to residents, business and the environment.
January 30, 2020 – The Mayor’s Council endorsed the Surrey Langley SkyTrain Business Case and directed TransLink to refer the Project to senior governments with final approvals for Stage 1 expected this summer, construction beginning early 2022 and opening day in 2025.
November 1, 2019 – Phase 2 of Surrey Langley SkyTrain Public Engagement has started. Attend an upcoming open house or take the online survey, as hosted by TransLink.
July 25, 2019 – Mayors’ Council votes to move ahead with developing the full business case for Surrey Langley SkyTrain. The $1.6 billion in project funding currently available will enable us to extend rapid transit in Surrey after 25 years. We will be able to build SkyTrain along Fraser Highway, connecting City Centre to Fleetwood with four stations and extending to Clayton as the Mayors’ Council calls on senior governments to commit additional funding now so the line can be extended all the way to Langley. The total funding envelope designated for rapid transit South of the Fraser in the Phase Three Plan for the Mayors’ 10-Year Vision is $3.5 billion.
July 19, 2019 – New details on Surrey Langley SkyTrain Project released including cost estimates and projected ridership for three scenarios: SkyTrain to Fleetwood, SkyTrain to Clayton, and SkyTrain to Langley. All three scenarios make good economic sense with strong ridership and positive benefit to cost ratios comparable to those of the Evergreen Extension and Canada Line.
May 23, 2019 – Record-level response to first stage of public engagement reported. More than 84% of Surrey and regional respondents support the Surrey-Langley SkyTrain project. See the Public Engagement Report and the Market Research Report.
December 13, 2018 – Mayors’ Council endorses TransLink work plan and gives direction to proceed with planning and project development work for a SkyTrain on Fraser Highway project, and initiates a planning process to refresh the South of Fraser rapid transit strategy, consistent with the 10-Year Vision of building 27 km of rapid transit on the three corridors. See the Mayors’ Council’s report on South of Fraser Rapid Transit (Page 60).
November 15, 2018 – Mayors’ Council suspends the SNG LRT project and provides direction to prepare additional analysis and a detailed work plan for revisions to the South of Fraser rapid transit strategy. See the Mayors’ Council’s report on South of Fraser Rapid Transit (page 23).
November 5, 2018 – New Surrey City Council takes Office and immediately passes motion to cancel the Surrey Newton Guildford LRT project and begin work on extending SkyTrain network from King George Station to Langley.
