CN will increase rail capacity at Port of Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet corridor

The Government of Canada, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority and CN announced that they have signed an agreement to upgrade key infrastructure to increase capacity on a critical segment of trade infrastructure in the Greater Vancouver area.

The project will increase capacity and grade-separate the Burrard Inlet rail corridor that services the south shore port area in Vancouver.

It consists of double-tracking a four-kilometre section of rail that links expanding import and export terminals on the south shore of the Burrard Inlet to the national rail network.

By building a second track, CN will create more rail capacity, allow for a better flow of rail traffic in and out of the port, and improve efficiencies in the supply chain.

CN says it is currently in discussions with partners and stakeholders as to the next steps and the timeline to expedite the construction and completion of the project.
