The Surrey Langley SkyTrain project is a 16-km extension of the existing Expo Line from King George station to Langley City Centre, the first rapid transit expansion south of the Fraser River in more than 30 years.
Once complete, the project will provide high-quality and low-cost transport for people in Surrey, Langley and throughout Metro Vancouver. Major construction on the Surrey Langley SkyTrain is expected to begin in 2024. Scheduled for completion in 2028, the Surrey Langley SkyTrain is being delivered through three separate contracts for the guideway, stations, and systems and trackwork.
In January 2023, the RFP for the first contract to build the elevated guideway, roadworks and utilities, as well as cycling and pedestrian paths along the extension, was issued to two shortlisted teams. They are South Fraser Guideway Connectors (created by Aecon, Acciona and Pomerleau including Parsons as design contractor) and SkyLink Guideway Partners (comprising of Dragados, Ledcor and Systra). The contract award is expected in fall 2023. The elevated line will be constructed along Fraser Highway from King George SkyTrain Station to Langley Centre, connecting City Centre, Fleetwood and Cloverdale/Clayton with seamless rapid transit.
