Preferred bidder for Surrey Langley SkyTrain systems and trackwork

Surrey Langley SkyTrainBritish Columbia Province has selected the preferred proponent team to design and build Surrey Langley SkyTrain systems and trackwork.

Following a competitive procurement process, the authorities have selected Transit Integrators BC to enter into final contract negotiations. The Transit Integrators BC team is comprised of:

  • AtkinsRéalis Major Projects;
  • AtkinsRéalis Canada;
  • Western Pacific Enterprises;

Transit Integrators BC will start initial design work and planning for the systems and trackwork of the project. Western Pacific Enterprises is a Surrey-based company that has contributed to previous SkyTrain projects, including the original Expo Line, Millennium Line, Canada Line and the Evergreen extension.

Works related to the guideway and stations components of the project are underway along the new SkyTrain route. This includes work to relocate power lines and prepare for the start of major construction this year. People who travel on Fraser Highway should plan additional travel time or consider alternative routes, as work is taking place in multiple locations along the corridor.

The Surrey Langley SkyTrain project is being delivered through three separate contracts. In April 2024, the Province announced the selection of South Fraser Station Partners to design and build 8 new stations for the project, including cycling and walking paths around the new stations.

In March 2024, the Province announced that SkyLink Guideway Partners has been chosen as the preferred proponent to design, build and finance the elevated guideway and associated roadworks, utilities and active transportation elements of the project.

Requests for proposals for all three phases were issued in early 2023 and formal contract announcements are anticipated in the coming months. Major construction on Surrey Langley Skytrain is expected to begin this year.

The Surrey Langley SkyTrain project is a 16-kilometre extension of the Expo Line from King George Station to Langley City Centre, the first rapid-transit expansion south of the Fraser River in 30 years.

In July 2021, the province secured up to CAD 1.3 billion (USD 948.4 million) in funding from the federal government and confirmed its intent to deliver the project all the way to Langley. By constructing the project all at one time, it will enable the Province to open the extension in 2028 – a full two years earlier than if it was built in multiple stages. Building Surrey Langley SkyTrain as a single project will also save the Province about CAD 500 million (USD 364.78 million).
