The City of Vancouver wants your input on the Millennium Line Broadway Extension.

Continuing from VCC–Clark Station on an elevated guideway for 800 metres, the extension will then travel approximately 5 km beneath Broadway with 6 new stations ending at Arbutus Street.

“With one million more people moving to the region over the next 30 years, the Broadway Extension Project is crucial to meeting the growing demand for transit and addressing congestion along this corridor,” said Kevin Desmond, CEO of TransLink. “We want people living and working along the corridor to get involved and provide input.”

Open houses have been scheduled to hear what you have to say about the design of the stations, both inside and out. The last two open houses are Tuesday, June 27th and Wednesday, June 28th from 4pm to 7pm at the Crossroads building at 511 West Broadway.

“Building the Broadway Subway is the single best thing we can do to cut traffic congestion and transit overcrowding in Vancouver, taking 50,000 cars off the road and delivering 250,000 trips its first day alone,” says Mayor Gregor Robertson.

“Metro Vancouver Mayors have a plan to deliver on regional transit and road infrastructure; with $2.2 billion on the table from the federal government, we are eager to work with the next provincial government as quickly as possible to deliver action on the Broadway Subway and other major projects, to cut congestion and bring relief to transit overcrowding.”

Vancouverites also have until July 8th to fill out an online questionnaire.
