Crosby's Molasses Rail Spur Project at the Port of Saint John in New Brunswick

The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) is considering the funding of a project for a company located in Saint John, New Brunswick. The project will be the construction of rail spur at the Crosby location at the Port of Saint John to facilitate the import and export of products to ensure consistent product availability. In the event of supply issues affecting the transportation by ocean vessel, this project will ensure that the company will be able to handle more rail cars at its west side location at the port of Saint John.
