Sep 17 2020, 11:58 am

With the official start of construction on SkyTrain’s Millennium Line Broadway Extension now just weeks away, TransLink has revealed the finalized names of the six new stations.

The provincial government confirmed the precise locations of the station entrances and construction zones last year, and Premier John Horgan reaffirmed the project’s schedule earlier this month. The project’s construction contractor was selected this past summer.

All stations of the $2.8-billion, 5.7-km-long seamless westward extension of the existing Millennium Line reaching Arbutus Street in Kitsilano will be underground.

These are the finalized station names of the extension:

Great Northern Way-Emily Carr Station

Great Northern Way-Emily Carr Station will be located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Thornton Street and Great Northern Way — on the site of a temporary green space just west of Emily Carr University of Art+Design’s (ECUAD) new campus.

The pit that will be excavated for the subway station will double as the starting point and operations site for the tunnel boring machines that will make their way to Arbutus Street.

“Emily Carr’s painting and life’s work have allowed so many around the world to appreciate British Columbia’s breathtaking natural environment,” said TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond in a statement.

“We’re proud that Great Northern Way – Emily Carr Station will showcase the name of such an important person in the province’s history.”

Mount Pleasant Station

Providing a clear distinction from Main Street-Science World Station to the north, Mount Pleasant Station at the southwest corner of the intersection of Main Street and Broadway is named after the neighbourhood.

The station entrance building will replace several low-storey commercial buildings that were previously occupied by businesses such as Tim Hortons and Rosemary Rocksalt.

Broadway- City Hall Station

As an expansion of the Canada Line station at Cambie Street, the Millennium Line platforms will carry the same name, Broadway-City Hall Station.

An underground network of pathways provide a high capacity design for the significant volume of passengers that can be expected to transfer between the Millennium Line and Canada Line.

Oak-VGH Station

Oak-VGH Station is located less than a city block from Vancouver General Hospital’s emergency department entrance. The station entrance is located at the southwest corner of the intersection of West Broadway and Laurel Street, currently occupied by vacant low-storey commercial buildings.

The name reflects both the station’s location within the health and research campus precinct, and the close proximity to Oak Street — one city block west — for transfers to the north-south bus route.

South Granville Station

South Granville Station will be located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Granville Street and West Broadway. It carries the name of the retail district south of the Granville Street Bridge.

In partnership with PCI Developments, the station entrance will be located within a mixed-use retail and office redevelopment of the RBC building, which is currently being demolished.

The new western terminus of the Millennium Line includes a bus exchange for the truncated 99 B-Line route between Arbutus Station and UBC Exchange.
