Pattullo Bridge Gas Line Replacement
About this project
We’re reviewing options to replace a 20-inch gas line on the existing Pattullo Bridge, as our line on the bridge will need to be removed before the bridge is replaced and decommissioned in 2024.
We are currently assessing the safety, cost and schedule of these options, as well as how to best minimize potential community and environmental impacts.
We are consulting with experts, stakeholders and Indigenous groups as part of this process.
More than 30,000 homes and businesses in New Westminster, Burnaby and Coquitlam rely on this natural gas line every day for the energy they need. The existing line on the Pattullo Bridge was built in 1957.
Project timelines and next steps
We plan to complete installation of the new gas line in 2021, and are working with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to coordinate our work with construction on the new Pattullo Bridge.
We will share further details on the Pattullo Gas Line Replacement project with the community as our review progresses. Public information sessions will be held later this year to give the community an opportunity to learn more, ask questions and provide feedback.
We expect to file an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity with the British Columbia Utilities Commission in 2020.
