The Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Program is a comprehensive package of road and rail improvements funded by an unprecedented collaboration of twelve partners representing local, regional, provincial, and federal governments as well as private industry. The Program will enhance the quality of life in communities through which rail traffic travels to and from Port Metro Vancouver terminals at Roberts Bank in Delta. Particularly, it will improve the safety and efficiency of both the road and rail networks in these communities.
The Roberts Bank Rail Corridor is an important 70-kilometre stretch connecting Canada’s largest container facility and a major coal terminal at Roberts Bank (south of Vancouver) with the North American rail network. It carries increasing volumes of international freight through communities in the Lower Mainland.
Nine road-rail projects in Delta, Surrey, and the City and Township of Langley have been identified for delivery by 2014, including eight overpass projects and one railway siding project.
