The Government of Canada will spend $5 million to increase the efficiency of rail logistics in Alberta by providing additional capacity to assemble trains, storage space and access to both Canadian National and Canadian Pacific rail networks.
The project includes adding 460 additional railcar storage spots and more than 40,000 feet of new track, including a new connection to the Canadian Pacific Willingdon Subdivision. The project will also allow Alberta Midland Railway Terminal to handle unit trains up to 8,500 feet in length for either Canadian National or Canadian Pacific shippers.
Officials noted the investments are expected to create approximately 210 jobs during the construction period and help spur economic recovery in areas hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The project is being funded by the National Trade Corridors Fund, a merit-based program that provides funding for the investment in critical assets that support economic activity, and the movement of goods and people in Canada.
“Our government is investing in Canada’s economy by making improvements to our trade and transportation corridors,” said Marc Garneau, minister of transport, in a statement. “We are supporting projects which help move goods efficiently to market, and people to their destinations; stimulate our economy during the pandemic; create good quality middle-class jobs; and ensure Canada’s transportation networks remain competitive and efficient.”
