Queensborough Dike Shoreline Protection Rehabilitation Project

The proposed project 

The City of New Westminster is proposing to rehabilitate a failing segment of existing rip-rap shoreline protection along the Queensborough Dike. The area for rehabilitation is approximately 90 metres in length.  

The project will consist site preparation, vegetation removal, shoreline preparation, extension of the existing municipal storm outfall, and replacement of the shoreline protection rip rap. Project activities will be conducted in out-of-water tidal conditions (i.e., in the dry). Staging and laydown areas will be situated on land (i.e., above the high water mark). 

Project activities may need to be completed outside of the port authority's standard working hours (excluding weekends and holidays) should daytime tides be unfavourable.
