Bridge details

The Skybridge does not carry automotive vehicles, as the neighbouring Pattullo Bridge does, but has two tracks enabling the TransLink SkyTrain to pass either way on the bridge on its journey between King George Station in Surrey and Waterfront Station in Downtown Vancouver. A third set of rails in the middle, not connected to the SkyTrain tracks, is used by maintenance crews to truck equipment back and forth on the bridge. The bridge has two 123-m (404-ft) tall towers and carries trains 45 m (150 ft) above the Fraser River and valley. The main span is and the total length is 616 m (2,020 ft), making it the longest cable-supported transit-only bridge in the world.
