St. John’s Port Authority: Pier 17 West Expansion Announced

The Government of Canada has committed up to $6.4 million for the Pier 17 expansion project at the St. John’s Port, Marc Garneau, Canadian Minister of Transport, announced yesterday. 

Following consultation with industry and port users, the St. John’s Port Authority (SJPA) is building a new finger pier, which is a deck structure that projects from the shoreline into the harbor, allowing a vessel to be berthed on each side.

The Port Authority will also carry out infrastructure improvements in order to increase wharf and landside capacity.

“All Canadians benefit from a competitive and efficient transportation system, providing for the efficient movement of people and goods to foster Canada’s economic growth. This is why the Government of Canada has committed up to $6.4 million to support this project,” Garneau said.

This $12.8 million project will increase the port’s ability to provide its offshore energy supply and service customers with increased operational capabilities, as well as benefiting other port users, the community and the province.

Construction work is set to begin in June 2017 and the project is anticipated to be completed in August 2018.
