Time to upgrade Metrotown station
Now that construction has started on some multi-storey skyscraper on the plot opposite the Metrotown SkyTrain station, on Beresford Avenue in Burnaby, it’s imperative that TransLink start immediate upgrades to this station.
The present access to the platform is woefully inadequate. The station has not been upgraded in 15 years and the traffic using it has increased more than tenfold, with strollers and scooters required to use the elevator. On the other side, one still has to walk up the stairs to get access to the escalator.
Stations like Granville and Broadway have all been upgraded, so why has Metrotown station been neglected? It’s an accident waiting to happen with the number of people trying to get on and off the trains. Someone might eventually fall onto the tracks.
TransLink, please do something before it’s too late. Put my tax dollars to work.
