Partners investing C$300 million in Roberts Bank rail corridor

Partners investing C$300 million in Roberts Bank rail corridor

Public and private partners will jointly invest about C$300 million ($284.3 million) for a series of road and rail grade separation projects along the Roberts Bank rail corridor, the 70-kilometer (43.5-mile) rail line that services the Port of Vancouver’s Deltaport container terminal and Westshore coal terminal.

   “Investment in these grade separations will reduce traffic congestion at rail crossings, enhance safety and reduce noise pollution by eliminating the need to sound train whistles at these crossings,” said Capt. Gordon Houston, president and chief executive officer of the Vancouver Port Authority, which is investing up to C$50 million ($47.4 million) in the project.

   Other contributors to the project include:

   * Government of Canada, up to C$75 million ($71.1 million).

   * British Columbia Ministry of Transportation, up to C$50 million.

   * TransLink, up to C$50 million.

   * Municipalities including the Corp. of Delta, City of Surrey, City of Langley and Township of Langley, collectively up to C$50 million.

   * Railways including the British Columbia Railway Co., Canadian National Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway and BNSF Railway, collectively up to C$32 million ($30.4 million).
