Emergency repairs to La Romaine wharf have been completed

Staff Writer |
Transport Canada has announced that emergency repairs to La Romaine wharf were completed on July 7 and that container traffic has resumed.

The three mooring bollards are back in service and the gap underneath the concrete slab had been filled. Wharf users must continue to comply with the operational restrictions that were put in place prior to June 6, 2018. Those restrictions include a load limitation of 7.5 kilopascals across the whole of the port infrastructure.

A delivery of petroleum products is expected on July 13 or 14. Transport Canada officials have received confirmation that there are sufficient reserves to last until that time.

Transport Canada intends to undertake other work on the wharf in 2018, including repairs to the slab and light pole, as well as electrical work.
