Burnaby, British Columbia, May 12, 2023 — Today, the Honourable Joyce Murray, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard and Member of Parliament for Vancouver Quadra, the Honourable Dan Coulter, Minister of State for Infrastructure and Transit, His Worship Mike Hurley, Mayor of the City of Burnaby and Vice Chair of the Mayor’s Council for Regional Transportation and Kevin Quinn, CEO of TransLink, announced a joint investment of more than $34.9 million to support a rail maintenance project for the SkyTrain.

This investment will enable the proactive replacement of running rail and rail pads for TransLink’s Expo SkyTrain line over the next four years. Between 2023 and 2027, an estimated 20.2 kilometres of running rail and an estimated 24,000 rail pads will be replaced.

Annually, this line sees an average of approximately 40 million kilometres of vehicular travel. Replacing the running rail and rail pads of the existing SkyTrain line will optimize TransLink’s service, allowing residents of the Metro Vancouver area to get where they need to go safely and efficiently. It will also reduce noise levels for communities located near the Expo line. The Skytrain Running Rail Replacement Project is part of TransLink’s 2018 Investment Plan, of which the Government of British Columbia funded 40% of total capital costs.

By investing in infrastructure, the Government of Canada is growing our country’s economy, building resilient communities, and improving the lives of Canadians.
