As part of the Broadway Subway Project, six new underground stations will be built to connect communities and neighbourhoods. These stations will make it easier and more affordable to live, work, shop, and access services along Broadway when the extension of the Millennium Line from VCC-Clark to Arbutus Station is completed.
The locations of the station entrances are shown below, as well as nearby properties that will be used as construction storage and staging areas. The station entrance locations were based on technical analysis and input from project partners.
All stations will be accessible by bus, walking, and cycling for a complete multi-modal experience. More information will be shared about station design and construction methodology once the contractor, who will design and build the project, has been selected in mid-2020.
Construction Storage and Staging Areas
The project is obtaining a number of properties adjacent to station entrances that will be used as work and storage areas to support construction of the underground stations. Using these properties along Broadway for construction purposes will help keep construction activity off Broadway and adjacent streets as much as possible, to mitigate disruption and manage safety for traffic, pedestrians and cyclists.
All six stations will be located underground, including station infrastructure such as platforms, escalators and elevators.
Above ground, the project will construct station entrances that passengers will use to access the underground stations. Outdoor plazas, fare gates, indoor and outdoor weather protection, and other facilities such as bike parking will be at street level.
Great Northern Way Station
Great Northern Way station will be located on the east side of Thornton Street, just north of Great Northern Way. This station creates better access to Emily Carr University of Art and Design’s Great Northern Way Campus and the emerging creative economy hub in the False Creek Flats.
Mount Pleasant Station
Mount Pleasant Station will be located at the southwest corner of Broadway and Main Street, for connectivity to the growing business and residential community in Mount Pleasant.
Broadway–City Hall Station
Broadway–City Hall Station will use the existing entrance to the Canada Line at the southeast corner of Broadway and Cambie Street to ensure a convenient underground connection between the Millennium and Canada lines. The new Broadway line will run below the existing Canada Line. Passengers will be able to transfer between the two lines within the same underground station, providing connectivity to services and destinations along the Canada Line, including the Vancouver International Airport.
The Fairview-VGH station will be located on the southwest corner of Broadway and Laurel Street, near Oak Street. This location will provide better access to Vancouver General Hospital and the rest of the medical district.
South Granville Station
The South Granville station will be integrated with a development at the northeast corner of Broadway and Granville Street. This integration is consistent with how rapid transit projects are planned in other major city centres, and will allow for better integration along the Broadway corridor, and better visibility and accessibility for the station at Granville Street.
PCI Developments will construct the structure for the entrance to the future station as part of the overall development. Once that is completed, the contractor for the Broadway Subway Project will be responsible for building the remaining infrastructure required for the transit station.
Arbutus Station and bus loop will be located at the northeast corner of Broadway and Arbutus Street. This station and bus loop will connect passengers destined for the University of British Columbia (UBC), with B-Line bus service between Arbutus and UBC. It will connect with the Arbutus Greenway.
