UPDATED: Expo Line backed up this morning due to 'switch problem'

Jun 8 2018, 2:54 pm

UPDATED AT 9:02 am: According to TransLink the issue has since been resolved and normal service has resumed.


ORIGINAL STORY:

Vancouver’s Expo Line is facing a delay in service this morning, with one track being shut down near Commercial-Broadway Station.

SkyTrains heading in both directions are alternating through one side of the guideway, meaning that you may be stuck waiting at a few stops before getting into the city.

A release from TransLink states that the issue arose from a switch error. Service is still available, albeit at a slower rate, and a westbound bus bridge has been set up between Nanaimo and Stadium Stations to help with the congestion.

Those taking the Millennium or Canada Lines will not be affected by the delays, and TransLink is currently working to resolve the Expo Line issue.

The delays began shortly after 7 am. There is no estimated time for its resolution.
