About the Project
The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority proposes the construction and operation of a new three-berth marine container terminal located at Roberts Bank in Delta, British Columbia, approximately 35 km south of Vancouver. The proposed Project, to be located next to the existing Deltaport and Westshore Terminals, would provide 2.4 million twenty-foot equivalent units of container capacity per year at Roberts Bank.
