CSX announces intermodal terminal in Valleyfield

2013-01-30

CSX Corporation has announced an expansion of its presence in the Greater Montreal area by building a 36-hectare intermodal terminal in the port city of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield adjacent to the St. Lawrence River. It will directly connect the region with the U.S. carrier's 34,000-km rail network in the United States. Completion of construction is scheduled for 2015.

The $100 million facility (shown in black in artist rendering) is expected to handle up to 100,000 containers a year, using modern, rubber-tire gantry cranes to transfer containers between trains and trucks, CSX said in late January.

Located in the Perron Industrial Park, the terminal will be close to the newly-completed Autoroute 30, providing easy access to the greater Montreal distribution and consumer market.

The project involves the building of a two-lane overpass that will provide grade separation between rail tracks and the Deltaport Causeway access road adjacent to the Deltaport Container Terminal. The grade separation will continute up to 200,000 TEUs of additional capacity annually at Deltaport.

2013-01-23

 

Total cargo at the Port of Halifax rose by 0.05% in 2012 to 9.49 million tonnes while container traffic increased by 1.4% to 416,572 TEUs compared to 410,549 TEUs in 2011, the Halifax Port Authority reported.

Biggest gain was in general cargo, which rose by 13.6% to 444,494 tonnes from 391,126 tonnes in 2011.

Bulk cargo declined by 3.4% to 5.58 million tonnes, due mainly to lower refined oil exports.

Last year was also a strong year for the port's cruise business. Halifax welcomed 134 vessels with more than 253,000 passengers versus 122 calls and 243,577 passengers in 2011. (Photo: HPA)
