Roadwork begins for CentrePort Canada project


On Friday, construction began on various road improvements around CentrePort Canada, a 20,000-acre inland port in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The road improvements are designed to provide more efficient highway access to CentrePort Canada and nearby facilities, such as a Canadian Pacific intermodal facility and James Armstrong Richardson International Airport.

CentrePort Canada is part of the Asia-Pacific Gateway Initiative, a network of transportation infrastructure, including British Columbia’s lower mainland and Prince Rupert ports, their road and rail connections stretching across western Canada and south to the United States, key border crossings and major Canadian airports.

“Investments in Manitoba’s transportation infrastructure will help boost capacity and improve the efficiency of trade to the east and west, to the American market, and to the rest of the world,” said Canadian Minister of Public Safety Vic Toews in a prepared statement.
