We are excited that the Evergreen Line has been approved providing quick access for Altitude residents to both the Millenium Line and soon the new Evergreen Line.
The first Evergreen Line construction contracts have been awarded to two local companies for the pre-construction of the Evergreen Line Rapid Transit Project, B.C. transportation minister Blair Lekstrom announced in Port Moody today.
“With a new construction contract in place, we’re one step closer to building the #EvergreenLine #PortMoody,” tweeted B.C. Premier Christy Clark. A big step forward, people on Twitter agreed.
“Today is an important milestone for the Tri-Cities, Metro Vancouver and British Columbia,” said Honourable James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages and Senior Minister Responsible for British Columbia, in a press release.
“From job creation to reducing commute times, today marks the start of a project that will positively impact Metro Vancouver for many years to come.”
The Province of British Columbia will decide on the main contractor for the Evergreen Line this summer. The Line is expected to be in service in the summer of 2016. The project promises to create 8,000 jobs during construction, and the total estimated cost is 1.4 billion.
The Evergreen Line will link Port Moody, Coquitlam and Burnaby with the existing Millennium Line SkyTrain. It promises to provide faster commutes, to ease road congestion and to reduce pollution for these communities, as well as to offer better transit connections between regional centres and downtown Vancouver.
“Our government is proud to be a partner in the Evergreen Line project and the start of pre-construction work is great news for this growing region of Metro Vancouver,” said Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities. “The significant federal investment in this project will create jobs and economic growth in British Columbia and, once complete, the Evergreen Line will cut commute times, reduce traffic congestion and result in cleaner air.”
