The BCCR Board of Directors would like to take you for a ride! Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to join a private tour on the world class Canada Line. From Waterfront Station to YVR and back you will experience the views over the Fraser River and the sensation of travelling under False Creek. Afterwards you will dine at the waterfront at Vancouver’s new West Convention Centre.
The $1.9 billion Canada Line Rapid Transit Project is the largest Public Private Partnership in BC and the largest infrastructure project in Canada. It connects downtown Vancouver with Richmond and the Airport and is being partially financed, designed, constructed and maintained by SNC-Lavalin and its partners. The alignment, which is 18.5 km long, consists of an elevated and at-grade guideway, two bridges crossing the Fraser River, a cut and cover tunnel down Cambie Street and a bored tunnel under downtown Vancouver. There are sixteen stations, eight underground, six elevated and two at-grade. The Project is currently on track to be completed ahead of schedule.
Our dinner speaker, Roger Woodhead, the Technical Director for the Canada Line, is responsible for overseeing all engineering and technical issues. He will discuss some of the more interesting aspects of the project and some of the challenges in managing a project of this size and complexity.
