About the project
G3 Terminals is proposing to remove large angular rock obstructions from three locations in Burrard Inlet in the vicinity of the Vancouver Berth at G3 Terminals. The three identified rock obstructions will interfere with the transportation of marine vessels to and from the terminal berth and must be removed prior to terminal operations. The Project consists of using a clamshell bucket on a crane, supported by a spud barge to remove the rocks obstructions. Approximately 105 m3 of rock will be removed and placed within G3 Terminal’s existing shoreline protection rip rap that was installed along the southern shoreline during construction of the berth.

Should the proposed project be approved, construction is expected to take place during regular construction hours over the course of five days.
