As part of a “Canada Starts Here: The B.C. Jobs Plan,” British Columbia Premier Christy Clark recently announced $50 million in funding to improve a provincially owned corridor that connects Deltaport to Canada's rail network. Port Metro Vancouver’s largest container terminal, Deltaport is located in Roberts Bank, B.C.

The funds are part of the planned $200 million Deltaport Terminal, Road and Rail Infrastructure project, which is designed to increase container capacity. Rail upgrades will be completed on the BC Rail Port subdivision, the last remaining publicly owned track segment from the former BC Rail Ltd., according to Canadian Pacific.
