Union Bay Estates and CVRD update Coal Pile remediation access road

  • In January 2019, Leighton Contracting has been installing a temporary construction access to Comprehensive Development Area 2 (CDA-2) from Highway 19A (opposite Washer Road). A permit was issued by Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure for this access in December 2018. This work is within the jurisdiction of the Province.
  • As of July 2019, site preparation outside of the environmental development permit areas (e.g. more than 30 metres from a watercourse) is ongoing. This includes a new temporary construction access. 

Starting in late-October 2019 and continuing through to late 2019/early 2020, QM Environmental and Wacor Holdings Ltd. will be expanding the roadway on Highway 19A, in the general area of the Jones Street intersection in Union Bay, BC. Construction of a gravel access road is also taking place during the same timeframe. This work is in support of the coal pile remediation project.

  • The construction on Highway 19A involves adding turning lanes for both the north and southbound traffic, while creating a merge lane onto the highway from the gravel coal pile remediation access road. Intermittent, temporary road closures will occur in and around the work zone on Highway 19A.
  • QM Environmental and Wacor Holdings Ltd. will carry out the work, with direction from Keystone Environmental, David Nairne & Associates, and GeoPacific with regards to civil design and construction, and participation from Baseline Archaeology and K’ómoks First Nation.
