Managed and disposed of approximately 40,000 metric tonnes of impacted soil to date. Project is ongoing.
Vancouver’s Broadway Corridor is an important economic, healthcare, and residential centre, and the busiest bus route in Canada and the U.S.A – with more than 100,000 transit trips each day.
Over the next 30 years, Metro Vancouver will welcome 1 million new residents and 600,000 new jobs. As the region grows, so do its transportation needs.
The Broadway Subway Project is a direct extension of the existing Millennium Line.
Scheduled to open in 2026, the province of British Columbia is delivering this project in partnership with TransLink and the City of Vancouver.
Continuing from VCC–Clark Station on an elevated guideway for 700 metres, the extension will then travel underground along Broadway for 5 km.
The Broadway Subway Project will be mainly constructed by underground tunneling methods. Twin tunnels with an excavation diameter of 6 metres will be built using two tunnel boring machines. The Project also includes 700 metres of elevated guideway from VCC-Clark station to a tunnel portal in the Great Northern Way Area. The new line will open in 2026.
Street-level construction and excavation occurs in the blocks where stations will be constructed, and at each end of the line. Traffic decking is being built in the station blocks on Broadway to allow people to travel through the corridor. A number of properties in station blocks are being used for off-street work and storage areas to support construction of the underground stations. This helps keep construction activity off Broadway and adjacent streets as much as possible to mitigate disruption and manage safety for people visiting or traveling through the area.
