Burnaby, British Columbia, March 9, 2022—Canada and B.C. are making significant investments in public transit infrastructure to build cleaner and well-connected communities and to improve service efficiencies and accessibility. By creating good jobs and spurring local and regional development, these investments will also support economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, Terry Beech, Member of Parliament for Burnaby North—Seymour, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, Kevin Quinn, TransLink CEO, and Mike Hurley, Mayor of Burnaby, announced funding for major upgrades to the Brentwood SkyTrain Station.

The Brentwood Town Centre Station is part of TransLink’s Millennium Line and is in an area of significant urban development. Upgrades will improve station accessibility at the south entrance and enhance customer connections to bus service, nearby amenities, and residential developments. Project works include, among others: the construction of a street-level elevator to the south entrance, improving access for commuters; the replacement of the existing south stationhouse stairs from ground level to mezzanine level, enhancing ambience and safety; and the installation of an operator washroom to streamline bus and operator transitions.

This project is part of a $32.6 million initiative to upgrade the station as a whole. The upgrades to the south entrance being announced today total $8.1 million. The Government of Canada is contributing $3.24 million through the Public Transit Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, and the Province of British Columbia is investing $4.86 million. Construction for the new upgrades will run parallel to those previously announced, with both scheduled to begin in late March and expected to finish in early 2024.
