New transport corridor completed at Prince Rupert

A $90 million project will allow increased exports of potash, LNG and other commodities.

   The Prince Rupert Port Authority has completed a new $90 million road, rail and utility corridor after two years construction.
   The British Columbia port said the corridor “supports multiple new large-scale terminal developments that will boost
Canada’s trade capacity with fast-growing Asia-Pacific markets.”
   The Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia each contributed $15 million to the project, Canadian National Railway $30 million, the potash exporter Canpotex $15 million, and the Prince Rupert Port Authority $15 million.
   The project includes five parallel rail tracks, a two-lane roadway, and a port-owned power distribution system along an eight-kilometer corridor.
   The corridor will provide capacity to ship potash, liquefied natural gas (LNG) and other Canadian products for export.
   Michael Cory, CN senior vice-president, Western Region, said, “The completion of the Road, Rail and Utility Corridor is the result of a positive cooperation between governments and the private sector and will allow future terminals on a larger Ridley Island site.”
   Ridley Terminals is currently used for metallurgical and steam coal, petroleum coke and wood pellets.
