The Canadian government is contributing up to CA$19.9 million (US$19.73 million), through its Asia-Pacific Gateway and Corridor Initiative for a CA$45-million (US$44.6 million) overpass on the Deltaport Causeway, part of Port Metro Vancouver's Deltaport Terminal, Road and Rail Improvement Project.
The export facilitation project plans to increase container capacity through improvements to existing port infrastructure at Port Metro Vancouver’s Deltaport Container Terminal. The overpass is expected to improve the efficiency, safety and fluidity of traffic to and from the terminal, by eliminating conflicts between rail and truck traffic.
The project involves the construction of a two-lane overpass that will provide grade separation between rail tracks and the Deltaport Causeway access road adjacent to the Deltaport Container Terminal. The grade separation will contribute up to 200,000 twenty-foot equivalent units of additional capacity annually at Deltaport.
