Prince Rupert port infrastructure projects

The Canadian Federal Government is investing $22 million in three separate projects at North America’s strategic gateway with Asia, the Port of Prince Rupert.

The following three major improvements will make the city’s transportation system stronger by addressing urgent capacity constraints and supporting growth at one of North America’s fastest growing ports:

  • Fairview-Ridley Connector will create a 5 km private-haul corridor, complete with two new rail sidings, which will drastically reduce downtown truck traffic.
  • The expansion of the Port’s road rail utility platform on Ridley Island.
  • Funding support of the engineering and design of CN’s mainline entry and exit from the Gateway.

Most importantly for Canadian trade, these investments will ensure that speed and reliability are maintained at this important Asia-Pacific gateway as well as meeting its trade growth forecasts over the next decade.
