The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is leading the Centerm Expansion Project to help meet increasing demand for containers shipped through the Port of Vancouver. It will increase container handling ability at Centerm Terminal by two-thirds, from 900,000 20-foot equivalent unit containers (TEUs) to 1.5 million TEUs. By increasing the terminal footprint by only 15 per cent and rearranging the terminal operations, the terminal will be able to handle more than 60 per cent increase in containers. The port authority is also leading the South Shore Access Project, which will improve port road and rail infrastructure. The improvements to port roads include extending Waterfront Road to connect it to Centennial Road and building the Centennial Road overpass. The Centennial Road overpass, completed in July of 2021, is a 600-metre two-lane elevated viaduct structure that will enable vehicle traffic to pass over two existing railway crossings. The new overpass will improve public safety, ensure more reliable commutes and better emergency response, reduce congestion, reduce GHG emissions and create job opportunities.
