Extra station planned for Evergreen Line in Coquitlam
An extra station will be added to the planned Evergreen Line SkyTrain link as part of a public-private partnership, the federal government and the City of Coquitlam have announced.
Lincoln Station is to be built on the $1.4-billion transit route in Coquitlam between Coquitlam Central Station and Douglas College Station.
The City of Coquitlam and the private real estate company Pensionfund Realty Limited will fund the new station, said a July 19 news release. The station is to have a private operator, who has not yet been selected.
Government officials said the Lincoln Station project will improve access to the rapid-transit system, stimulate residential development, and boost the economy.
The Evergreen Line is expected to be up and running in summer 2016.
