Major sections of SkyTrain’s 30-year-old track will be replaced throughout the Labour Day weekend, which has TransLink asking users to plan for at least 20 minutes of extra travel time.
Colleen Brennan says there will be some delays on the Millennium and Expo Lines as a result of the rail replacement work, but at the same time are doing everything possible to keep people moving while it’s being done.
She adds there will be signs at all stations with announcements being made on trains and attendants available.
Over 45-hundred metres of rail are needing to be replaced.
Expo and Millennium Line service will be reduced, while crews replace rail west of Commercial-Broadway Station. Trains will single track at Commercial-Broadway and Main Street-Science World stations.
Millennium Line will operate between VCC-Clark and Columbia stations only.
A frequent bus shuttle will operate between VCC-Clark, Main Street-Science World and Stadium-Chinatown stations from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Millennium Line customers travelling into or out of downtown Vancouver in the afternoon should consider using this bus service.
