The City of Surrey council has passed a resolution suspending the launched request for qualifications (RFQ) for its Surrey-Newton-Guildford LRT Project. The RFQ is halted awaiting the direction from the Mayors' Council and TransLink Board.

The RFQ was issued on 5 September, inviting private parties to submit qualifications for the design, construction, operation, maintenance, rehabilitation and partial financing of a 10.5km street-level light rail service connecting the Guilford and Newton neighbourhoods​ of Surrey, a city in British Columbia, south-west Canada. 

The Government of Canada contributed CAD483.8 million (US$365.48 million) for this specific project and TransLink is funding the remainder. About CAD50 million (US$ 37.77 million) has been spent to date.
