Trans Mountain is moving forward with construction planning for the Expansion Project, with construction expected to begin in September 2017, although the specific start date will vary along the pipeline. We’re continuing to engage our neighbours to better understand how planned construction activities may impact communities and how neighbours would prefer to receive construction information and notifications.

Trans Mountain held a coffee chat in Coquitlam on August 30, 2017 so local businesses could learn more about construction along United Boulevard. It was also an opportunity for attendees to provide feedback to help us determine how we can complete construction activities safely and efficiently while minimizing disruption to local businesses and their customers. The input and feedback gathered at the event will help us better coordinate construction activities in the area and minimize any potential impacts.

Subject matter experts were on hand to address specific topics, such as construction timing, traffic management and planned measures to mitigate construction impacts.

Construction along United Boulevard in Coquitlam is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2018, with some preparatory activities scheduled in the fall of 2017. To learn more about the routing and construction in Coquitlam click here.

Trans Mountain and our contractors will work to limit noise, dust and night lighting during construction in order to minimize disruption to neighbours. We will continue to engage and communicate regarding our activities before and during construction and our company and contractor representatives will be available to provide construction-related information along the pipeline corridor, answer questions and address construction-related concerns.

We are committed to ensuring that construction-related traffic impacts pose as little disturbance as is practical to neighbouring residents, landowners, businesses and communities.

For more than 60 years, the existing Trans Mountain pipeline has been operating safely in Coquitlam and providing petroleum products to the West Coast.
