One of the escalators at Commercial SkyTrain station has been out of service for more than a month.
TransLink says a roof leak was causing the handrail to slip which made it unsafe.
But they blame bad weather for the delay in fixing it.
They say snow build up made the leak difficult to repair and apologize for the inconvenience.
The escalator is expected to be up and running by the end of next week, more than 40 days after it closed down.
