The British Columbia Ministry of Transportation has finally revealed the locations of the six stations on its Vancouver Broadway Subway line.
“The 5.7-kilometre line will extend the existing SkyTrain system seamlessly from VCC-Clark Station to a new terminus station at Arbutus Street, to serve the most congested section of the Broadway Corridor”, the Ministry says.
Here’s a look at the stations and their locations.
Great Northern Way
Located on the east side of Thornton Street just north of Great Northern Way, this station is designed to create better access to nearby Emily Carr University of Art and Design campus.
Mount Pleasant Station
This station will be located on the southwest corner of Broadway and Main Street.
Broadway City Hall Station
Broadway City Hall station will be integrated into the existing Canada Line station, at the southeast corner of Broadway and Cambie Street. The station will also connect riders to to the Millennium Line.
This might be the most anticipated station of the six, as it provides better access to Vancouver General Hospital as well as other medical facilities in the area. The station entrance will be on the southwest corner of Broadway and Laurel Street.
South Granville Station
South Granville Station will be located on the northeast corner of Broadway and Granville Street. Accordingly, the station will provide good transit access to those in the South Granville, Burrard Slopes, and Granville Island neighbourhoods.
Arbutus Station will be located on the northeast corner of Broadway and Arbutus Street, and will connect UBC-bound passengers to the B-Line.
The Government of B.C., Government of Canada, and the City of Vancouver all contributed to funding the $2.83 billion project.
The BC Ministry of Transportation says the Vancouver Broadway Subway project will begin construction in 2020. However, riders will have to wait as TransLink has said that operations won’t begin until 2025.
In addition, until then, expect traffic in the area to be affected, particularly when construction begins.
