Transit passengers are being warned to expect major delays on SkyTrain’s Expo Line due to a track issue near Nanaimo Station.
As a result, train operations on the line between Nanaimo Station and Main Street-Science World Station, including Commercial-Broadway Station, are limited to a single track.
TransLink says a bus bridge shuttle service is being set up to connect passengers between Nanaimo Station, Commercial-Broadway Station, and Main Street-Science World Station.
The disruptions began shortly before 4 pm this afternoon. The public transit authority says crews and extra staff have been deployed, and they are “working diligently to get things moving as soon as possible.”
There is no estimated for when regular train service will resume.
Additionally, the 99 B-Line has been experiencing severe delays throughout the day due to the closure of West Broadway between Alma Street and Macdonald Street for the annual Greek Day Festival. Buses are being rerouted to West 4th Avenue, on top of the scheduled reroute to avoid University Boulevard for road reconstruction.
