The skytrain extension of the Expo Line from King George to Langley Centre along Fraser Highway is due to be completed by the year 2026 and will be central to the infrastructure development of the two cities. This 16 km skytrain line will have 9 stations connecting residential areas and businesses to the city centres.
Surrey and Langley has seen tremendous population growth over the years due to affordability and home ownership is still attainable. Just like the Evergreen line was built to accomodate commuters along Burnaby Lougheed and Coquitlam Centre, the skytrain along Fraser Hwy will attract a surge in population growth and densify the nearby areas with multi-family home developments. Thus creating jobs and convenience for the local population. There will be many job spaces such as retail shops, restaurants, services, hospitality, institutions and offices.
Although some may disagree with me, as I see it, the pros of infrastructure improvement will only embetter the lives of people and meeting the needs of the local population who rely on convenience and a safer community. The con will always be about the cost of living but as always the question is how do we continue to sustain affordability through improvements.
As property prices continue to increase, so must personal disposable income. How this can be acheived is up to local governments and urban planners implementing effective measures to build positive growth communities.
