When complete, CP’s new intermodal facility in Edmonton will be a key location for moving goods between Edmonton and the rest of the world. Positioned on a 240 acre site, the facility will benefit multiple stakeholders and attract other investment in the area. Phase 1 primarily focuses on an auto-handling facility and we’re providing construction project management.
When this phase is completed, several components in addition to the auto-handling facility will be in place. These include site clearing, topsoil stripping, and rough grading; four loading pads; a paved parking area for 851 cars and paved access road; street and area lighting; and security fencing and compressed air system. Also, a 2.7 kilometre train building track is being built parallel to the mainline and a large storm drainage system is being installed, including a storm pond, collector system, and drainage areas for the auto-handling track and paved areas.
With so many activities going on at once, quality isn’t just important, it’s a necessity. We work closely with the contractor on a daily basis to make sure there are no issues. And we’ll keep doing that until the new facility is complete and operational.
