At the January 14, 2019 Regular Meeting, Delta Council approved the submission of comments on the supplemental information for the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project. The City’s comments are related to noise monitoring and prevention, mitigation for bird collisions and traffic congestion. These comments will be provided to the Review Panel for consideration as part of the environmental assessment process. Council also requested that staff work with the Port of Vancouver to have them attend an upcoming Regular Meeting of Delta Council. View the staff report.
Port of Vancouver proposes the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project (RBT2), involving the construction and operation of a new three-berth marine container terminal located next to the existing Deltaport and Westshore Terminals. The proposed expansion would provide an additional 2.4 million units of container capacity per year at Roberts Bank.
Since September 2013, RBT2 has been undergoing a federal environmental assessment by an independent review panel under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. There are more than 20 steps in a federal environmental assessment process and RBT2 is approximately two-thirds of the way through this process.
In October 2016, Delta made its formal submission to the review panel on the RBT2 Environmental Impact Statement. See Delta’s submission.
