Hamilton Liberal MP Filomena Tassi yesterday announced a major investment of $5.5 million for a project that will increase capacity at the Port of Hamilton.

The port will receive the investment for a Pier 10 Export Expansion from the National Trade Corridors Fund (NTCF) on behalf of Transport Canada.

The federal funding contributes to a $16 million overall expansion project managed by the Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA).

The investment announced here will make our transportation system stronger by addressing urgent capacity constraints at the Port of Hamilton and fostering long-term prosperity for our community,” said Filomena Tassi, Minister of Seniors and Member of Parliament for Hamilton West — Ancaster — Dundas.

According to the port, the Pier 10 Export Expansion will involve the relocation of Soletanche Bachy Canada, formerly Bermingham Foundations off of the pier to make room for agri-food expansion on site, and two distinct construction projects.

The first construction project will be rebuilding Pier 10’s east dock wall (which was originally constructed in the early 1900s) and dredging the Wellington slip alongside it to accommodate berthing seaway vessels.

The second project will be laying a new concrete foundation and constructing a storage facility for bulk sugar and grain.
