Federal government reiterates $3-billion commitment to B.C. transit projects

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Premier John Horgan were in Surrey earlier this week to again voice support for two transit projects: the Broadway subway in Vancouver and the creation of light-rail transit in Surrey. 

No new money was announced, according to the CBC, but the appearance was about “locking this down,” according to Horgan. “This is happening. It’s not being revisited. The new information is that the cheques are in the mail and we’re going to be building.”

The Surrey project is scheduled to begin construction in the next two years, while the Broadway line will reportedly open by 2025.
