CP is continuing to monitor weather conditions through the Fraser Canyon and Metro Vancouver areas. Crews remain in the area to regularly monitor track and rail infrastructure and perform any required work between train movements. Train operations continue in a safe and steady manner through the region since the restoration of CP’s line early last week.
CP is working closely with customers and terminals, as well as the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, and other stakeholders, to restore supply chains.
