TransLink officials released new renderings of proposed stations for the Surrey SkyTrain extension Friday and launched a new round of public consultation for the project.
The transit agency had originally intended to collect public feedback in the spring, but was forced to delay plans due to COVID-19.
The latest round of consultation will focus on how to minimize construction impact on traffic, how to best communicate with residents and businesses and how to incorporate neighbourhood character into the line’s stations.
The TransLink Mayors’ Council approved the project’s business case in January, however, senior governments still need to sign off on it.
The project is officially known as the Surrey-Langley SkyTrain extension, but the $1.6 billion in secured funding is only enough to build the line four stops to 166th Street in Fleetwood.
Proponents hope to eventually secure another $1.5 billion to complete the extension to Langley City Centre.
TransLink is holding a telephone town hall on the project on Sept. 23, and a webinar on Sept. 24.
