TSAWWASSEN – Local commuters, farmers and truckers now have a safer, more reliable route to cross Deltaport Way at 41B St. without being delayed by long trains and truck traffic, thanks to a newly completed overpass.

“Demand for Canadian exports in Asia-Pacific markets continues to grow at a rapid rate, and investments such as these along the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor are furthering Canada’s competitive advantages, improving infrastructure in local communities, and creating jobs and prosperity for workers, businesses and families,” said the Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway. “With the completion of the 41B overpass and, eventually, the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor overall, we are strengthening Canada’s Asia-Pacific Gateway, while positioning the West Coast as the corridor of choice between Canada and the high-growth Asia-Pacific markets.” [Read More…]
