Notice of Construction

As you may be aware, Pacific Coast Terminals (PCT) has received a project permit (PP 2014-096) from Vancouver Fraser Port Authority (VFPA) to construct a potash handling facility as part of PCT’s expansion project. Pacific Coast Terminals is committed to providing the community with updates of construction and its potential impacts throughout the duration of the project.


Construction Working Hours

PCT has received an additional approval from VFPA to extend construction work hours through to May 2017. Construction activity is anticipated, in addition to regular work hours, from 8pm-7am, Monday to Sunday.

The extended hours are also required in order to allow the timely completion of the potash project by mid-April 2017. The scope of works during extended hours include the following:

  • Railcar Unloading Area
  • Shiploader
  • Conveyors and Storage Areas
  • Waste Water Treatment

PCT will conduct a noise study to determine the effect of the proposed works. Further, PCT proposes to conduct nighttime noise monitoring to determine noise levels during proposed work periods. Potential noisy equipment will be identified and noise mitigation measures will be implemented. Potential light pollution will be identified and lighting refocused. Loud operations will not be performed during the night shift. This includes pneumatic tools, and equipment that will cause a disturbance to the public. Only work that is specifically required will be executed during off peak hours.

PCT will continue to keep the community updated through our website and our Channels newsletter.
