What was this engagement about?
The Broadway Subway Project is a 5.7 km extension of the Millennium Line, from VCC-Clark Station to Broadway and Arbutus. It will provide fast, frequent, and convenient SkyTrain service to B.C.’s second largest jobs centre, world-class health services, an emerging innovation and research hub, and growing residential communities.
The engagement was the Virtual Open House Station Design Advisory Process. The purpose of the virtual open house was to share information and receive feedback about the above ground portion of the stations, including entrances, adjacent plazas, emergency exits and ventilation locations.
Station designs have been informed by past consultations conducted by TransLink and the City of Vancouver. Input was used to develop the criteria that has informed the design of the stations. This included escalators in both directions, elevators, and safety and security measures.
The Province also held community meetings and pop-up events between October 30 and November 7, 2019, where Broadway Subway Project team members shared information and answered questions about the Project. The team considered input received during this engagement, along with technical requirements, to help inform traffic, construction, and communications plans.
Efforts to identify a rapid transit solution for the Broadway Corridor have been underway for decades. As part of the UBC Line Rapid Transit Study (2009-2012), an evaluation of approximately 200 technology and route options was completed, along with extensive stakeholder and public engagement.
More information is available on the Broadway Subway website.
How will my contribution make a difference?
Feedback will be provided as input to the City of Vancouver’s design advisory process and will be considered in finalizing the stations’ designs.
