Trans Mountain is moving forward with construction planning work for the Expansion Project, with construction expected to begin in September 2017, although it will vary along the pipeline. We’re continuing to engage our neighbours to better understand how our planned construction activities may impact communities and how neighbours would prefer to receive construction information and notifications.
As part of this engagement, Trans Mountain held an information session in Abbotsford on May 24, 2017, so local residents could learn more about Project construction plans and schedules, as well as potential community impacts and mitigations.
We are committed to ensuring construction-related impacts pose as little disturbance as is practical to neighbouring residents, landowners, businesses and communities. We will continue to engage and communicate regarding our activities before and during construction, and we will establish a community liaison contact for each affected community.
For more than 60 years, the existing Trans Mountain pipeline has been operating safely in Abbotsford and providing petroleum products to the West Coast.
