Apparently, to coincide with Evergreen's opening, TL will be adding a second passarelle and platform on the north side of the Expo Line. The rep said TL will be deconstructing a portion of the Safeway to build the platform. He noted that there are several traffic configurations that could occur re: controlling train doors and which side passengers would board for either entrance or exit.
Forgive my ignorance, but what is a passarelle?
Also, I'm not quite sure why the heck they would need to tear down part of the Safeway.. it's nowhere near the track alignment.
Edit: oops, I was thinking of the Burquitlam Safeway. Never mind!
