The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority proposes the construction and operation of a new three-berth marine container terminal located at Roberts Bank in Delta, British Columbia. The Project would be located next to the existing Deltaport and Westshore Terminals. The environmental assessment includes a consideration of the proposed Project and of marine shipping associated with the Project.
