Large federal investment in Port of Nanaimo infrastructure

2019-07-25

Nanaimo, BC - Marc Garneau, federal Minister of Transport, announced on July 24 a major investment of $46.2 million for an infrastructure project that will increase capacity at the Port of Nanaimo, and move Canadian goods to international markets more efficiently as well as provide better connections between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.

The work includes expanding the existing wharf from 182 metres to 325 metres, building a new warehouse, a new administration and maintenance building, a new truck gate, replacing the existing crane with two 24-metre cranes and increasing the terminal's storage area.

The overall project is expected to cost $90 million, with the port authority and terminal operator DP World contributing to the funding. (photo NPA)
