Vancouver: Port Metro Vancouver is forging ahead with plans for a new 2.4m teu container terminal at Roberts Bank in Delta, British Columbia. The port has submitted an environmental impact statement on the proposed development.
“The region is running out of room to manage growing Canadian trade with Asia,” said Robin Silvester, president and ceo of Port Metro Vancouver. “The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project will ensure demand can be met while providing important economic benefits to B.C. and Canada. We look forward to the upcoming review of our environmental assessment by an independent panel.”
If the port gets the green light, the nearly six-year construction will start in 2018.
