Construction Projects

Gilbert Road Sewer

Gilbert Road Sewer
Metro Vancouver’s Gilbert Road Sewer transports the majority of Richmond’s sanitary sewage to the Lulu Island Treatment Plant. In 2013, Metro Vancouver began a major project to upgrade the regional sewer line by constructing a second sewer line adjacent to the existing pipe. Once complete, the project will facilitate future maintenance, provide increased conveyance capacity to minimize backups and accommodate future growth in Richmond.

 Construction of the first section of the project, extending south from Metro Vancouver’s Bridgeport pump station to the intersection of Gilbert Road and Elmbridge Way is complete. Metro Vancouver advises that construction on Gilbert Road will be completed in multiple phases beginning in 2018.
