The Broadway Subway is an extension of the Millennium Line and will bring the SkyTrain service to one of the busiest destinations in Metro Vancouver. Some 700m of the line will be elevated, extending from VCC-Clark Station to a tunnel portal near Great Northern Way. There will be 5km of tunnelling below the Broadway Corridor from Great Northern Way to Arbutus Street. Six underground stations will connect communities and the region, including a direct underground connection to the Canada Line at Cambie Street. The Broadway Subway has been costed at CA$2.827bn, funded and delivered by the government of British Columbia with contributions from the government of Canada and the city of Vancouver.
