TransLink has announced that all West Coast Express trains heading eastbound from Waterfront to Mission will not run this afternoon due to protesters blocking Canadian Pacific tracks on the Pitt River rail bridge.
The transportation agency notes that it has been advised by Canadian Pacific Railway Police that it won't be able to provide service on the commuter railway for the remainder of the day.
Customers are advised to use SkyTrain and bus service instead.
