Sapperton Station is located on an elevated portion of the Millennium Line, a part of Greater Vancouver's SkyTrain rapid transit system. The station itself is located in eastern New Westminster. The station will serve the major redevelopment of the nearby Labatt Brewery site.
Sapperton Station is located along Brunette Avenue in the Sapperton area of New Westminster, above a Canadian Pacific right-of-way, on the shores of the Fraser River. It is connected to ground level by a newly built stairway on Brunette Avenue near the Royal Columbian Hospital. This station is temporarily inaccessible by wheelchair. Wheelchair and disabled passengers should contact Translink for more information.
The station was built in 2002 as part of the Millennium Line. Before the Millennium Line was complete, a short spur from Columbia Station was opened in eastern New Westminster, as a test track; this spur included the stations of Sapperton and Braid.
All the stations along the Millennium Line have unique design, and Sapperton is no different. This elevated station contains a mezzanine level connected to the platform level by stairs, escalators and elevators. There are two side platforms, separated by an artwork wheel.
This station provides quick access to Royal Columbian General Hospital, one of the oldest and busiest in British Columbia.
