Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Update- TMX in Front of Chilliwack City Council (VIDEO)

Chilliwack – This past Tuesday, Trans Mountain pipeline spokespersons were in front of Council with a construciton update of what the next year looks like.

The twinning of the pipeline cuts a swath through Chilliwack and council was quick to point out that they had questions, especially on safety and the protection of the aquifer.

Construction between Hope and Chilliwack is very obvious along Highway 1.

In the video, Trans Mountain’s Project Manager Brian Cikaluk outlined ‘Spread 6’, which is 70 kilometres in length, from Bridal Falls to 232nd Street in Langley.

Construction starts in January 2022 and should be complete by the end of 2022.

From TMX Website , the Hope to Popkum Updates:

Othello Road Temporary Closure There will be upgrades made to Othello Road between Kawkawa Lake Road and the Triton Water Canada Plant (formerly Nestle Waters) to support upcoming Expansion Project construction activities. Initially, existing single-lane traffic will be maintained followed by a period of full road closure. During the full road closure residents are being asked to use alternative routes. Signage will be in place to direct road users. Once completed, this repair work will allow for two-way traffic along Othello Road.
