Fraser Grain Terminal set to begin construction on new site across from Quayside at Surrey Fraser Docks
RE: Construction Update – Fraser Grain Terminal Export Facility at 11041 Elevator Road, Surrey
Following our December 2018 Construction Start Update letter, we are writing to provide information on upcoming construction activities for the Fraser Grain Terminal Export facility at 11041 Elevator Road, adjacent to Fraser Surrey Docks.
What to expect
We would like to notify you of upcoming noisy work beginning 11 February 2019. Construction activities will include the following:
• Pile driving – this work is required to construct the foundations for the terminal. The first phase of this work will occur for approximately one week. The second phase is scheduled to commence in late February and will take approximately three weeks to complete. We will provide notifications for any additional pile driving occurring after March 2019.
Other construction work continuing on the site over the next four months includes:
• Sheet piling – this activity uses vibration to secure a ground-retaining structure. This work is scheduled to commence in early February and will take approximately three months to complete.
• Stone columns – this is a method of ground densification that uses vibration to compact aggregate materials within the ground. This work is scheduled to commence in early February and will take approximately four months to complete.
• Concrete pouring, general earthworks, site grading, utilities removal and installation will continue with material deliveries starting at the end of February.
Hours of work for construction activities will be consistent with the port authority’s approved hours of construction: 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday (excluding statutory holidays). A temporary increase in noise and dust levels around the Project site is anticipated during construction, and our goal is to help minimize disruption as much as possible by using industry best practices. Neighbours may hear construction noise typically associated with this type of work including, sheet piling and pile driving for ground improvement activities. Nearby businesses may experience a small increase in traffic on the local roads accessing the Project site, but traffic effects are anticipated to be minimal during these construction activities.
We are committed to keeping our neighbours informed about construction activities and responding in a timely manner to questions and concerns.
