Rail replacement to cause SkyTrain delays on Labour Day weekend

TransLink says commuters should expect SkyTrain delays this Labour Day weekend as it continues to replace major sections of its 30-year-old track.

Expo and Millennium Line service will be reduced while crews replace rail west of Commercial-Broadway Station. Trains will single track at Commercial-Broadway and Main Street-Science World stations.

Millennium Line will operate between VCC-Clark and Columbia stations only.

There will also be a bus shuttle that will operate between VCC-Clark, Main Street-Science World and Stadium-Chinatown stations from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Commuters should plan for at least 20 minutes of extra travel time. TransLink says there will be signs at all stations and announcements will be made on trains and at stations.

Crews are replacing a total of 4,550 linear metres of rail.

Last weekend, approximately 950 linear metres of rail were replaced by Edmonds Station despite a massive windstorm and a downed tree in the area where rail was replaced.
