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 enhances 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 improves 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.
The Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Program was completed in fall 2014 within the approved schedule and budget.
