The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project is a proposed new three-berth container terminal at Roberts Bank in Delta, B.C., on Canada’s west coast. The Project would provide 2.4 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) of container capacity and is needed to meet forecasted demand for trade of goods in containers.
The Project is undergoing a federal environmental assessment by an independent review panel, under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. The Project is also undergoing an assessment under the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Act and requires other permits and authorizations before it can proceed.
Subject to regulatory approvals and permits, market conditions and a final investment decision, construction of the Project would begin in 2018 and would take approximately five-and-a-half years to complete. This would allow the Project to be operational by the mid-2020s, when its capacity will be required.
The Project would be funded by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority and private funding and would not require tax dollars.
