The review panel for the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project continues to slowly mow through mountains of information as they undertake the environmental assessment for the project.
The proposal would build a new three-berth container terminal southwest of the existing terminal and the coal port, as well as an expanded tug basin and a widened causeway. The project would create capacity for an additional 2.4 million 20-foot container units, more than doubling the current capacity of the Deltaport terminal.
On August 2 the panel received responses to its most recent requests for additional information from the project proponent, Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
Those responses, responses to previous information requests and other documents related to the review are accessible through bit.ly/2u2TwmT.
The panel’s analysis of the environmental assessment information, including the submissions received during the comment period, is ongoing. Additional information requests to the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority are expected, as are information and advice from other parties. Over 1,000 documents pertinent to the review are available through the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency at bit.ly/2ipebRK.
Further opportunities for comment on the project will be provided as the panel moves through the sufficiency review stage of the environmental assessment.
