B.C. shortlists teams for SkyTrain extension work
The preferred proponent will likely be announced in early 2024.
The province of B.C. announced that two teams have advanced to the next stage of procurement to design and build stations for the Surrey Langley SkyTrain.
The teams that have been invited to participate in the RFP stage are:
South Fraser Station partners
SkyLink stations partners
The work also includes constructing cycling and walking paths around the new stations. The province anticipates the preferred proponent will be announced in early 2024.
The Surrey Langley SkyTrain project is a 16-kilometre extension of the Expo Line from King George Station to Langley City Centre, the first rapid transit expansion south of the Fraser River in 30 years.
Once complete, the project will provide transportation for people in Surrey, Langley and across Metro Vancouver. Major construction on the Surrey Langley SkyTrain project is expected to begin in 2024.
The Surrey Langley SkyTrain project is being delivered through three separate contracts. On Jan. 3, 2023, the RFP for the first contract, which includes the elevated guideway, roadworks and utilities, and active transportation paths along the extension, was issued to two shortlisted teams. The contract award is expected in late 2023.
The third contract, for the design and installation of SkyTrain track work as well as the design, installation, and integration of electrical systems is in the RFQ stage. The list of shortlisted firms to advance to the RFP stage will be announced later this spring.
