Working in your neighbourhood

We regularly maintain our infrastructure to ensure the safe and reliable delivery of energy to our customers. This includes upgrading electricity and natural gas lines – which may require crews to work along roads – as well as managing vegetation near our facilities and rights of way. We appreciate your patience and co-operation as we try to minimize disruptions and complete the work in your neighbourhood as quickly and safely as possible.

Surrey to Coquitlam natural gas line upgrade: construction complete

Project details: We’ve upgraded approximately 11 kilometres of natural gas line between Surrey and Coquitlam so we can increase its capacity, keep up with growing demand and continue the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to our customers. We’ve added a backup line that runs alongside the existing natural gas line, in the same Surrey to Coquitlam corridor.

Anticipated dates: As of December 2017, gas line construction for this upgrade project is complete. Site clean-up and final habitat and landscape restoration work will continue until the summer of 2018.
