Description

Design and construction of the Millennium Line elevated concrete guideway, running through Lougheed and New Westminster and intersecting with the expo LRT line, consisting of a 17 km-long viaduct.
For the construction, both balanced cantilever and span-by span methods were employed.

The design and construction of the new Millennium Line Rapid Transit system is a remarkable achievement on many levels. The system opened in August 2002, on budget and on a fast-track 4 year schedule, with an array of distinct architecturally designed stations sharing a common language of transparency, light and neighborhood welcome.
