Along with PCL, HDR Architecture Associates Inc. and Stantec Architecture Ltd. are included in the design-build team.  With financial close expected by the end of February, construction on the new hospital has been scheduled to start this summer.

Residents near the Main Street-Science World and Commercial-Broadway SkyTrain stations have been advised by Translink of the upcoming track replacement, including rail and rail pads taking place:


March 2021 - Winter 2021/2 between 10:00 p.m - 4:00 a.m. Sunday - Thursday. 


See the below letter from Translink for more details ...



March 01, 2021


Dear Resident,


The original Expo Line has been in service for more than 30 years, and the SkyTrain tracks between Main Street-Science World and Commercial-Broadway have carried more than two million trains.  We're replacing aging SkyTrain track, including rail and rail pads, to help ensure a smoother and quieter ride for our customers, and to help ensure the Expo Line remains safe and reliable for years to come.


From March 2021 until winter 2021-2022, we'll be replacing the portion of track between Main Street-Science World and Commerial-Broadway stations, including 6,700 metres of rail and 14,100 rail pads.  As crews gradually work along the line, neighbours can expect nighttime noise for periods of up to two weeks at a time. This will involve intermittent cutting and grinding of steel, diesel-powered work trains, and the hositing and placement of steel, including impact noise.


Nighttime work will occur from approximately 10 p.m. until 4 a.m., Sunday through Thursday. Customers can expect modified service between several stations during this time. To stay up-to-date on the specific details for your area, please visit translink.ca/keepmoving. For potential impacts on your commute, please visit translink.ca/alerts.


We appreciate your understanding as we work closely with the contractor to minimize the impact of this project.


For questions or concerns, please contact:

     Customer Service | 604.953.3333

      - Monday to Friday: 5:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.

      - Saturday and Sunday: 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.


Thank you for your patience while we maintain the safety and reliability of the Expo Line.


Sincerely,

Running Rail Replacement Project Team

Improving Indoor Air Quality

Our homes harbor more than just our families and possessions. Home is also where pollutants, allergens, and other irritants accumulate and thrive, with possible harmful effects on our health. There are simple steps homeowners can take to improve the air quality in their home and increase their comfort and well-being.


GET A HANDLE ON HUMIDITY

Keep indoor humidity below 50% to help prevent mold and dust mite growth. Once mold gets established it can continue to grow even at lower humidity levels. Use exhaust fans in kitchens and bathrooms, make sure the dryer is properly vented to the outdoors, and address any leaks or condensation issues. A dehumidifier can help in especially humid locations such as basements.


REDUCE DUST

Dust can contain pollen, mold spores, lint, animal dander, bacteria and more. While it’s impossible to completely rid a home of dust, there are ways to help control it. Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter that traps small particulate matter. Change or clean the furnace filter regularly, according to manufacturer’s instructions. High-quality furnace filters are more expensive but do a better job of filtering dust, pet hair and other particles.


VENT IT

Open doors and windows whenever possible to improve air circulation and allow the house to “breathe” fresh air.


CLEANER CLEAN-UP

Choose cleaning products with environmentally friendly formulations. Many of these products do an equal or better job than their conventional counterparts. Dispose of old paint, pesticides, solvents and other products so they aren’t leaking fumes into the home. Check local requirements on how to properly dispose of such items.


By taking these relatively easy steps, homeowners can truly make their home a breath of fresh air.


Compliments of Pillar to Post Home Inspectors!
