A letter writer says a SkyTrain extension will eventually get built

SkyTrain now or later

Daryl Dela Cruz is a voice crying in the wilderness “prepare ye the way for SkyTrain.”

Daryl Dela Cruz is a voice crying in the wilderness “prepare ye the way for SkyTrain.”

He is the only one, along with his supporters, who makes any sense.

King George SkyTrain station is already sitting on the Fraser Highway, and it is only a matter of extending it along the Fraser Highway all the way to Langley, Aldergrove, Abbotsford and terminating in Chilliwack.

Buses or LRT could still be used to go north or south from SkyTrain stations, such as south on King George to White Rock, as well as north from Fleetwood to Guildford. Cloverdale could be connected with SkyTrain at ground level by bus, or LRT from the intersection of Fraser Highway and Highway 15. This would shorten the commute trip for everyone.

The cost of SkyTrain from King George station to Langley, is about equal to the cost of LRT from King George to Newton and from Surrey Centre SkyTrain to Guilford.

This SkyTrain extension will eventually get built anyway in the future. Why not do it now?
