Evergreen Line Rapid Transit Project

SNC-Lavalin Inc.

Burnaby, Port Moody, and Coquitlam, British Columbia 

Building on Canada’s 150 years of confederation, SNC-Lavalin has delivered another rail milestone for Canada. The 11 km Evergreen Line Rapid Transit Project in Metro Vancouver makes the SkyTrain the longest driverless system in the world. SNC-Lavalin was responsible for the design, build, and partial financing of the project. They used a variety of innovative techniques to build 5 km of elevated guideway, 4 km of at-grade guideway, and a 2 km bored tunnel to deliver a complex transit infrastructure project in an urban area. The project benefited from close collaboration with First Nations groups, whose artwork is featured throughout the six new stations.
