​Project Overview

Metro Vancouver is replacing the existing Douglas Road Water Main which spans 15 kilometres between North Burnaby and the City of New Westminster. This replacement project has been phased over several years due to the length of the water main and the Still Creek Section is the final phase of the project.

The Still Creek Section is approximately 2.2 kilometres long and is located primarily along Douglas Road in the Still Creek neighbourhood of Burnaby.

The Still Creek South Section is scheduled for fall 2023 until fall 2024. Please see the map below for the project alignment.

The Still Creek North Section started in spring 2021 and will be completed in summer 2023. To learn more about this section of the project, visit the project webpage.
