About the project

Deltaport, at Roberts Bank in Delta, BC, is the largest container terminal in Canada, with a current capacity of 1.8 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent unit containers). Current road and rail constraints limit the capacity of Deltaport to meet forecast demand for additional container movements.

As part of the Container Capacity Improvement Program, Port Metro Vancouver has worked with the Province of BC and Deltaport operator TSI Terminal Systems Inc. to develop a plan to upgrade existing infrastructure that would increase Deltaport’s container capacity by 600,000 TEUs, to a total of 2.4 million TEUs.

The Deltaport Terminal, Road and Rail Improvement Project (DTRRIP) is an efficient and cost-effective plan to increase container capacity through improvements to existing port infrastructure. Project improvements will be implemented mostly within the existing terminal, road and rail footprint and will have a low potential for environmental impact. Work will not occur within the marine environment.

The project has four key elements: 

  1. An overpass on the existing Roberts Bank causeway that will separate road and rail traffic; 
  2. Reconfiguration of rail track and additional container handling equipment within the existing Deltaport Terminal; 
  3. Additional rail track within the existing railway corridor and a portion of the Option Lands; and 
  4. Road Improvements on Deltaport Way to improve the movement of container trucks at Deltaport.
