The Broadway Subway is an extension of the Millennium Line and a key link in Metro Vancouver’s transportation system.
The 5.7km line, of which 5km is in bored tunnel, will extend the existing SkyTrain system seamlessly from VCC-Clark Station to a new terminus station at Arbutus Street, to serve the most congested section of the Broadway Corridor.
Construction of the subway will start in 2020, with the new extension opening in 2025.
The Broadway Subway Project will cost $2.83bn, funded and delivered by the Government of B.C., with contributions from the Government of Canada and the City of Vancouver. The Project is a key part of the rapid transit program in Metro Vancouver’s Mayors’ Council 10-Year Vision. The Vision is funded by the governments of B.C. and Canada, TransLink, and local municipalities.
The Project is being procured using a design-build-finance approach.
