Fairview Terminal Phase II Expansion Project

The Prince Rupert Port Authority and the Canadian National Railway Company are proposing to expand its existing Fairview Container Terminal in Prince Rupert Harbour to increase the facility's current design capacity of 500,000 TEUs per annum (twenty foot equivalent) to 2,000,000 TEUs per annum. This will included extending the wharf structure and expanding the on-shore terminal components. This project will include:

  • site clearing, grubbing, grading, stripping, and cut and fill;
  • large volume rock cuts;
  • on-site construction of ten concrete caissons;
  • construction of a pile and deck extension of the existing wharf;
  • dredging in front of the proposed caissons and for the containment berm and wharf structure;
  • construction of a rock berm and mattress;
  • in-filling (riparian, intertidal, and subtidal habitat) behind the containment berm (16 hectares);
  • installation of caissons and construction of the wharf topside;
  • eastern re-alignment of the existing CN Rail mainline across the proposed terminal;
  • container and intermodal yard facilities construction (14,000 m total linear track);
  • construction of two CN Rail sidings and an access road between the terminal and the southern end of Kaien Island (infilling of riparian and intertidal habitat, culvert extensions); and
  • construction of a CN Rail locomotive wye at the south end of Kaien Island (infilling of salt water lagoon habitat).
