Surrey Langley SkyTrain

We're working closely with the Surrey Langley SkyTrain Project team to accommodate the extension of SkyTrain into Langley by making modifications to some of our existing power lines and structures along Fraser Highway between 140th Street and 203rd Street.

This project will ensure that the lines continue to provide safe and reliable power to residents and businesses in the Lower Mainland and allow for the safe construction of the SkyTrain around the power lines.

What's new

February 2024

In February, we'll begin vegetation pruning and clearing work [PDF, 246 KB] along Fraser Highway from 168 Street in Surrey towards 203 Street in Langley. Vegetation work between 148 Street and 168 Street is expected to be completed in early February.

Skilled workers we've employed or contracted who are trained in electrical safety and tree care will complete the work. Trees will be pruned using the best arboriculture (tree care) techniques to eliminate any safety hazards. 

Project communications began in December 2023. We'll continue to work with key stakeholders, including local governments, residents, and businesses located near the project to keep them informed of our work throughout the project. 

We're working with the SkyTrain Project team to prepare for the SkyTrain extension into Langley by adjusting some of our existing power lines and structures along Fraser Highway between 140th Street and 203rd Street. Our work will include vegetation clearing and relocating our poles and power lines to align with the SkyTrain extension. As part of this work, distribution power lines and poles will move from the north side of Fraser Highway to the south side.

This work will ensure our infrastructure continues to provide safe and reliable power to residents and businesses and allow for the safe construction of the SkyTrain around the existing power lines.

We'll work on our existing power lines and structures along Fraser Highway between 140th Street and 203rd Street.
