RICHARDSON LLR (LOW LEVEL ROAD) RAIL EXPANSION PROJECT

PER No. 21-057

PROJECT OVERVIEW


The Richardson International port terminal in North Vancouver is one of the most efficient terminal facilities in the world, exporting Canadian-grown grains and oilseeds to countries along the Pacific Rim. Global demand is growing and Richardson looks for opportunities to maximize operations and efficiently deliver agriculture product to international markets.

Richardson is committed to continuous investment – to enhance our facilities and services, improve our processes, and strengthen the connections we make with our customers and our communities. We currently operate an industrial rail yard for the primary purpose of receiving, temporarily storing, and unloading grain commodity cars at our facility located at 375 Low Level Road, North Vancouver Richardson has submitted a project permit application to the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority for additional tracking in the existing rail yard at this site.


Richardson’s proposed project includes:

  • The installation of 15 additional storage tracks;
  • Realignment of tracks within the existing yard to facilitate the efficient receiving and storage of full trains – and as a result, fewer partial trains;
  • The addition of crossovers and turnouts within the existing yard.

This work, once complete and on a per capita basis, will improve operating efficiencies for both Richardson International and the external rail carrier servicing the site.
