B.C. launches transportation plan

The B.C. government launched last week B.C. on the Move, a 10-year transportation plan that outlines critical investments and improvements throughout the province.

This $2.5-billion plan will grow the economy, improve safety, maintain and replace aging infrastructure and support trade for B.C.’s expanding resource sectors through Canada’s Asia-Pacific Gateway, according to a statement by the B.C. government.

Section 8 of the plan focuses on “Enabling Efficient Ports and Rail” for investments in port and rail infrastructure improvements.

Priorities for action through B.C. on the Move include determining potential infrastructure upgrades needed to support LNG facilities, and investing in infrastructure that enhances access to ports and increases port bulk, break bulk and container capacity, the statement said.
