The proposed project
GCT Canada Limited Partnership is proposing to expand its existing GCT Deltaport Container Terminal, a container storage and handling facility located in Delta, British Columbia, approximately 35 kilometres south of Vancouver. As proposed, the GCT Deltaport Expansion - Berth Four Project would add a fourth berth on the east side of the Roberts Bank Causeway, include an expansion of the intermodal rail yard along the causeway (Roberts Bank Way) and dredging to provide safe access for ships. The additional land-based container storage and handling facilities would provide an additional two million 20-foot long storage containers (otherwise referred to as 20-foot equivalent units or TEUs) per year at the existing terminal.

More information on this project is available on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry website, Registry reference number 81010.
