Project Status

Permit amendment – under review

In February 2020, Metro Vancouver submitted an amendment to a project permit No. 17-131-1. The amendment would amend the permitted construction hours in respect to condition 17 of the approved Neptune Cargill Overpass Extension project, at Neptune Bulk Terminals, North Vancouver, B.C.

As part of the Project and Environmental Review for the proposed project under the Impact Assessment Act, the proposed project is posted on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry here with an opportunity for public comment between February 24, 2020 to March 25, 2020.

About the proposed amendment:

Neptune Bulk Terminals proposes to carry out physical works associated with the approved Neptune Cargill Overpass Extension Project 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, excluding Statutory Holidays to August 31, 2020. This would require an amendment to condition 17 of the approved project permit, which states:

All general construction and physical activities related to the Project shall be conducted from Monday to Saturday between the hours of 7:00 am and 8:00 pm. No construction and physical activities shall take place on Sundays or holidays. These hours shall not be modified without prior approval of VFPA.

The amendment is being requested further to an earlier approval in August 2019, which allowed physical works to be carried out 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, excluding Statutory Holidays from August 7, 2019 to February 29, 2020. The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority understands that these works are not anticipated to generate significant noise and that Neptune Bulk Terminals is committed to concentrating any activities likely to generate noise to daytime hours.
