This project is a 19.5 km long rapid transit connection between Richmond, the Vancouver Airport and downtown Vancouver. The Canada Line is made up of four design components: a bored tunnel section, a cut and cover section, an at grade section and an elevated section.
The cut and cover portion was 6.2 km long with a combination of side-by-side and stacked guideway built out of 95,000m3 cast-in-place concrete in a deep shored trench. The project included the use of form travelers and unique access platforms to facilitate construction of the guideway.
