TransLink next month will begin upgrading the Surrey Central SkyTrain Station in Surrey, British Columbia.

The work includes installing a new elevator, three escalators, a staircase and improved lighting. The project also calls for adding two new entrances, which will help boost capacity, accessibility, safety and wayfinding, TransLink officials said in a press release.

The project, which will cost 25 million Canadian dollars, is expected to wrap up by 2018's end.

Located in an area that's experienced "significant development," the Surrey Central Station is one of seven on the Expo Line targeted for upgrades. Construction also is underway at the Commercial-Broadway, Metrotown and Joyce-Collingwood stations.

TransLink crews have completed upgrades at the New Westminster, Scott Road and Main Street-Science World stations.
