Construction of the Evergreen Line guideway will resume today on North Road, following an investigation into the equipment failure on the truss on June 17, 2014.
The investigation indicated an operator error caused the equipment failure. As a result, a lift connection between the secondary beam and the main truss failed. The main truss was supported at all times.
In response to the incident, EGRT Construction has strengthened the lift connection and implemented new procedures and additional training for all operators and supervisors.
The investigation was completed by EGRT Construction and involved the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and WorkSafe BC. The truss has been re-certified by the manufacturer to lift guideway segments into place.
The Evergreen Line remains on schedule to open in summer 2016.
