B&B wins early works contract for SkyTrain extension

B&B wins early works contract for SkyTrain extension
PROVINCE OF B.C.—A SkyTrain car pulls into Broadway Station. The City of Surrey is moving ahead with early work to prepare for an extension of the SkyTrain system out to Langley.

SURREY, B.C.—B&B Heavy Civil Construction Ltd. will carry out preparatory work for the Surrey-Langley SkyTrain extension project.

City officials announced city council approved a $17.5 million contract with B&B this month.

“The City of Surrey is moving full speed ahead on SkyTrain Early Works,” said Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum in a statement. “With funding secured from all levels of government, the $4 billion Surrey Langley SkyTrain will be built in one phase. Constructing the new SkyTrain line all at once will create a savings of $500 to $600 million and will see the Surrey Langley SkyTrain delivered two years earlier. New rapid transit is long overdue in Surrey. At a time when the environment and global warming is at the forefront, the need to get people out of their fossil fuel burning cars and into transit has never been greater.”

The construction contract includes widening Fraser Highway to four lanes with cycling and pedestrian facilities and a widened centre median to accommodate the upcoming SkyTrain work. Works consist of road widening, concrete curbs, sidewalks, multi-use paths, retaining walls, street lighting, traffic signals, a wildlife culvert, fish passage improvements and in-stream works. The contract includes roadworks at Fraser Highway from George Junction to East of 96 Avenue and culvert replacement work on Fraser Highway at Quibble Creek.

The contract work is expected to start this month and be completed by May 2023.
