Prince Rupert Port Authority Fairview
The recently completed connector road linking Ridley Island to the Fairview Container Terminal in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, represents a significant infrastructural development for the region. Built along the picturesque shoreline of Kaine Island, the project utilized a combination of overland and marine fill methodologies to create a robust and sustainable roadway.
Designed to accommodate two-way heavy haul traffic, the new connector road has been engineered to meet stringent standards for safety and durability, ensuring it can withstand the rigors of industrial use. Planning for the future, the alignment has also allocated space for two additional Canadian National (CN) railway sidings. This provision will enable further expansion and streamline cargo movements between the Fairview Container Terminal and other parts of Canada, thereby enhancing the port's operational efficiency.
