Construction Projects

Gilbert Trunk Sewer No. 2

In the spring 2013, Metro Vancouver began a major project to upgrade and twin this major regional sewer line. This project will facilitate future maintenance and meet the long term sewer capacity needs in the City of Richmond. The project will be completed in four phases over the next five years.

The existing Metro Vancouver Gilbert Trunk Sewer No. 1 runs from the Bridgeport Sanitary Pump Station (at Great Canadian Way and Bridgeport Road) to the Lulu Island Wastewater Treatment Plant via Bridgeport Road, River Road and Gilbert Road. This main has been in service since 1970 and is the trunk sanitary conveyance for most of the City, including the high density City Centre.
