Trans Mountain’s Facilities Application, filed on December 16, 2013, identified a selected pipeline study corridor and in some cases alternative pipeline study corridors – both options were presented and discussed with communities in the summer of 2013 at open houses, workshops and on this website.
Following that filing, Trans Mountain has continued its work to optimize the route and minimize impacts to people and the environment through a combination of technical and environmental studies, public consultation and on-the-ground fieldwork. The following map provides the current proposed pipeline corridor and in some places the proposed alternative pipeline corridors currently being examined by Trans Mountain.
Trans Mountain engagement activities will continue as we work to optimize the route. We will continue to gather input on the proposed and alternate revised pipeline corridors and the information collected will be submitted to the NEB in future filings. The process for getting to the final route is explained further here.
In addition to environmental studies, engineering feasibility studies, extensive dialogue with all landowners, neighbours, Aboriginal Peoples, stakeholders and communities have taken place and will continue along the pipeline route. This is an important part of the process to determine the proposed route of the proposed Trans Mountain Expansion Project. To learn more about this engagement, read Volume 3A, Volume 3B and Volume 3C of the Facilities Application.
