The Canada Line is Vancouver’s rapid transit rail connecting YVR to downtown Vancouver in under 30 minutes and to downtown Richmond in 18 minutes. In 2005, SNC-Lavalin was awarded a contract to partially finance, design, build, operate and maintain the 19.5-kilometre Canada Line LRT. The LRT was the first major rapid rail project undertaken in the country under a public-private partnership (P3) model. It was also the first rapid mass transit system in Canada to link the downtown core of a major city with an international airport.
Fraser River Pile & Dredge Ltd. was awarded a contract in 2005 by RSL Joint Venture to construct the major pier foundations for 2 bridges crossing the Fraser River to Richmond and Vancouver Airport which would support the Canada Line light Rapid transit line.
