VANCOUVER – Translink is seeking feedback from the public on possible designs for the Millennium Line Broadway Extension project.
Open House sessions will be held at the Crossroads Building on 511 West Broadway today (June 27) from 4 to 7 p.m. and Wednesday, June 28 from 4 to 7 p.m. An online questionnaire is also available at https://www.translinksurvey.ca/R.aspx?a=498&as=dn78lr82Mc.
The line will be a direct extension of the existing Millennium Line, going from VCC-Clark station on an elevated guideway for 800 metres before travelling approximately five kilometres below Broadway, one of Vancouver’s busiest transportation corridors. Six new stations are planned, ending at Arbutus Street.
A future phase of the project will extend the line all the way to the University of British Columbia’s Point Grey campus.
"Building the Broadway Subway is the single best thing we can do to cut traffic congestion and transit overcrowding in Vancouver, taking 50,000 cars off the road and delivering 250,000 trips its first day alone," said Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson in a news release. "Metro Vancouver mayors have a plan to deliver on regional transit and road infrastructure; with $2.2 billion on the table from the federal government, we are eager to work with the next provincial government as quickly as possible to deliver action on the Broadway Subway and other major projects, to cut congestion and bring relief to transit overcrowding,"
