SkyTrain bridge getting a needed upgrade to replace aging joints

SkyTrain bridge getting a needed upgrade to replace aging joints
PROVINCE OF B.C.—A SkyTrain car travels across the Fraser river on a bridge. The aging SkyBridge is getting a series of upgrades to keep it in service.

SURREY, B.C.—TransLink plans to begin replacing aging expansion joints along the SkyTrain tracks of the SkyBridge, which serves as a critical crossing for Expo Line service between New Westminster and Surrey in B.C.

The work will replace essential rail components that have carried more than five million trains since 1990. Officials noted the expansion joints on the bridge have not been replaced since their construction and have reached the end of their useful lives. The replacement work is part of TransLink’s Maintenance and Upgrade Program.

To limit delays trains will cross two at a time in each direction, providing 15-minute service during peak periods. At all other times, one train will cross in each direction, providing 12-minute service. Additional SkyTrain staff will be onsite to assist customers at affected stations in Surrey and New Westminster, as needed.
