New detailed renderings of the station designs for Broadway Subway

Apr 29 2021, 4:47 pm

The provincial government has released new renderings detailing the proposed final designs of the stations for the SkyTrain Millennium Line Broadway Extension.

The new visuals are for a new online public consultation on the above-ground portions of the station designs, including the station entrances, public art, and landscaping. This consultation does not seek public feedback on the underground portions of the stations, which have already been finalized.

The stations are designed by DIALOG and IBI Group.

Consultation materials note there will be single-occupancy washrooms accessible from the public areas of the stations with the assistance of a SkyTrain attendant, similar to the existing policy on the SkyTrain network.

Two of the busiest stations — Broadway-City Hall Station and Arbutus Station — will be built with accessible washrooms in the fare paid zone in the future.

At Broadway-City Hall Station, the Millennium Line extension will share the existing Canada Line street entrance through an expansion. An interconnected series of underground pathways will seamless connect the Canada Line and Millennium Line platforms to support transfers; with the project replacing the 99 B-Line, it is estimated 75% of the Canada Line and Millennium Line passengers at Broadway-City Hall Station will remain underground when they perform their transfer.

Arbutus Station, as the temporary western terminus of the Millennium Line, until the UBC extension is built, will be supported by a bus exchange for the truncated 99 B-Line route for the remaining journey to the university.

All six subway stations have up and down escalators to all levels, and multiple elevators. Space has also been set aside for future additional elevators at Oak-VGH Station and Arbutus Station.

Secure bike parkades are planned at Great Northern Way-Emily Carr Station and Arbutus Station, which will each have a capacity for 34 bikes. Bike racks are planned for outside the other stations, except South Granville Station.

All stations will have a public art component, with artists slated to be announced later this spring.

There will also be a separate Indigenous public art component, which will be determined in consultation with local First Nations. The public art at Arbutus and Oak-VGH stations will be specifically dedicated to Indigenous art.

An online survey on the above-ground station designs is open from now until May 12, 2021.

Demolition work at the station sites is well underway, with major construction on the project starting this summer. Tunnel boring construction using twin machines, travelling westward from Great Northern Way-Emily Carr Station, will begin next year.

The six-km-long, $2.8 billion extension of the Millennium Line is expected to see 140,000 daily boardings upon opening in 2025. It will be a roughly 11-minute train ride from Commercial-Broadway Station to Arbutus Station.
