Trans Mountain pipeline begins construction of tunnel in Burnaby, B.C.


BURNABY, B.C. — Construction has begun on the 2.6-kilometre tunnel in Burnaby, B.C., for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

The company says in a news release the work on the tunnel connecting the Westridge Marine and Burnaby terminals began Wednesday.

It says the start of construction of the tunnel represents one of the major components of the expansion project in the Lower Mainland and is expected to take a little over half a year to complete.

The tunnel construction began after a year of preparation and more than six years of planning, design and regulatory processes.
