Road and Rail Project
About the project
CP plans to extend an existing track leading into and out of its Vancouver Intermodal Facility.
Expansion of the track will allow CP to build longer trains to accommodate growing trade.
The project includes a new rail siding track for parking trains (approximately 16 000 feet) including a new rail bridge over Katzie Slough, to support the Vancouver Intermodal Terminal.
The expansion includes a third rail from west of Harris Road to Golden Ears Way through the heart of our residential community (the yellow line on the map below).
