Consultations begin January 24 for the Surrey project and January 28 for the Broadway extension.

The Surrey project will see 10 km of street-oriented LRT track built along King George Boulevard and 104 Avenue and will connect Surrey City Centre, Newton Centre and Guildford Town Centre with a total of 11 stops. This project will take three to five years, TransLink said. The next phase of the project will include building 16 km of track connecting the Surrey line to Langley Centre.

The Broadway project will be an extension of the existing Millennium Line SkyTrain from VCC-Clark to a new station at Arbutus Street, which will be underground beneath the Broadway Corridor. Five more underground stations will be built.

TransLink also announced it is increasing SkyTrain and SeaBus services.
