Interchange - Winter 2017 - 20


The Roberts Bank Rail Corridor
Program was the first example
of a comprehensive, integrated
and jointly funded program
for crossing and proximity
improvements designed to
facilitate the flow of goods.

Project is ongoing at Roberts Bank. An overpass
on the Roberts Bank causeway separating
road and rail traffic was completed in 2014,
adding between 150,000 and 200,000 TEUs of
additional capacity at Deltaport. Construction
work to reconfigure the Deltaport Intermodal
yard is set for completion in 2017, and
planning is underway for additional rail track
and road improvements on Deltaport Way.
In addition, a permit was issued last May for
construction of the G3 Terminal at the Port of
Vancouver. Some existing buildings are being
demolished to make room for a new grain
terminal that will include, among other facilities,

a rail loop capable of accommodating up to three
trains of as many as 150 cars each. In 2015, the
Vancouver Fraser Port Authority also issued the
go-ahead to Cargill Ltd. for a rail improvement
project that will see a reconfiguration of its
existing rail yard, including new lead track and a
new railcar indexer. The upgrades are expected
to increase Cargill's annual grain shipments
from 3.4 million to 5 million metric tonnes.
Canada's railways are investing heavily to
accommodate this growth. CN, for example,
has been building additional track to
accommodate increased pacific gateway traffic,
including investments of over $200 million
to its Edmonton-Winnipeg and WinnipegChicago corridors. This includes infrastructure
investments the company is undertaking
further north at the Port of Prince Rupert,
North America's fastest-growing port.
CN is the sole railway serving Prince Rupert,
which is the closest port to Asia by up to 58
hours of sailing time compared to any other
North American West Coast port. This translates
into the ability for ocean carriers to add
approximately one round-trip voyage per year
