COQUITLAM – At a celebration to mark 50-per-cent completion of Port Mann/Highway 1 construction, Premier Christy Clark acknowledged workers for their contributions to the project, which when complete, will improve safety and reliability, save travel time and improve the movement of goods for trade to the Asia Pacific.

“Not only are these 1,500 workers helping to build our economy, they are helping to improve the lives of British Columbians,” said Premier Clark. “Once complete, commuters will save an hour a day in travel time. That’s one more hour a day that people can spend with their families instead of stuck in traffic.”

The Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project will create 8,000 jobs and is a key component of the provincial Gateway Program to improve the movement of people, goods and transit throughout the Lower Mainland. Infrastructure projects of this calibre provide the support that will boost domestic, cross-border and global export opportunities, including to the Asia Pacific. Through this type of investment the province is accelerating job creation and growing revenues to support BC families. [Read More…]
