Cascadia West Rail Extension

Canadian Pacific is proposing a rail track extension and modification west of the Cascadia Terminal along the south shore of the Burrard Inlet, west of Second Narrows in Vancouver. The rationale for the proposed extension and modification is to improve capacity and service to the terminal. The proposed project involves the connection of the existing L29 and K10 rail tracks and includes the realignment and installation of new rail, of which approximately 30 metres is within the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority's jurisdiction. Ballast will be laid at the project site and rail turnouts and rail tracks installed atop.

If approved, construction is proposed to commence in March 2020 and be complete by June 30, 2020. Work is to be undertaken seven days per week between the hours of 7:00am and 8:00pm.
