At the May 5, 2014 Regular Meeting, Delta Council received a staff report providing an update on BNSF Railway Company's proposed siding extension, including an approximate 2.5 kilometre increase to the siding extension area to be constructed in 2014/15. The area is now defined by BNSF as south of 64 Avenue to south of River Road and totals approximately 5 kilometres.
Council also received a response letter from the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, Minister of the Environment, indicating that this project would not be considered a reviewable project under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.
