Metro Vancouver | ​Installation of no anchor sign​

September 5, 2023

Project status 

Permit application under review 

In August 2023, Metro Vancouver submitted a project permit application to install a no anchor sign approximately 500 metres downstream of the Port Mann Bridge, on the south shore of the Fraser River in Surrey, BC. The project is in federal waters managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority. 

As part of the Project and Environmental Review for the proposed project under the Impact Assessment Act, the proposed project was posted on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry with an opportunity for public comment between August 22 and September 20, 2023. 

About the project 

The sign is required to notify marine users of a no anchor zone near the Metro Vancouver Port Mann Water Main crossing No. 2. The sign would be an approximately 1.8metre-wide aluminum panel and would attach to two 324-millimetre diameter steel piles. Piles would be driven to an approximate depth of 10 metres. Works will be completed with a marine spud derrick equipped with a vibratory hammer or from the upland.
