Evergreen Line constituents unveil construction schedule, station names

Canadian and TransLink officials have announced the construction schedule for the next 12 months and final station names for the Evergreen Line project in metro Vancouver, British Columbia.

The station names for the line, which is scheduled to open in summer 2016, are Lougheed Town Centre, Burquitlam, Moody Centre, Inlet Centre, Coquitlam Central, Lincoln and Lafarge Lake-Douglas, Transport Canada officials said in a prepared statement.

"We want the construction of the Evergreen Line project to be a positive experience for the communities. That's why we are committed to responding quickly and providing valuable information to residents, commuters and businesses as the project moves forward," said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Mary Polak.

The Evergreen Line will link neighborhoods in Burnaby, Port Moody and Coquitlam, and be fully integrated into TransLink's existing system, connecting to the Millennium Line at Lougheed Station.

The $1.43 billion project (in Canadian dollars) is being funded by the governments of Canada and British Columbia, and TransLink.
