Improving BC’s Lower Mainland trade capacity
In collaboration with Public Services and Procurement Canada, Transport Canada and Infrastructure Canada, the CIB will examine the transportation needs of Asia-Pacific Gateway transportation network, including New Westminster Rail Bridge.
The Asia-Pacific Gateway transportation network encompasses ports, rail, highways and intermodal facilities connecting western Canada with Asia-Pacific economies.
CIB’s recommendations for improving the capacity of the BC’s Lower Mainland, Prince Rupert and New Westminster Rail Bridge transportation networks will increase Canada’s competitiveness in terms of trade and commerce.
Benefits of CIB involvement
Large projects take years to plan and develop and are often delayed due to limited availability of development funding. Our funding will be used to expedite assessment work.
