Port of Vancouver has just released this video update on their Centerm Expansion Project and South Shore Access Project.
According to the company, dredging and infilling work continues in the water area around the terminal.
Port of Vancouver is building a dyke east of Centerm to create new land between Burrard Dock and Ballantyne pier.
As reported, sand from the Fraser River is being moved to the project site by barge and deposited between Burrard Dock and Ballantyne pier.
“Dredging the quantity of sand required for this project and infilling such a large site is no easy feat. In order to accomplish this, we are using the largest dredging vessel on the west coast, the 309,” the port said in the update.
The dredger is taking sand from the bottom of the Fraser River, holding it on board, and then releases it into the lagoon using a giant hose.
The project, delivered by Centennial Expansion Partners (CXP), is set to be complete by the end of 2021.
