Canadian Pacific starts network restoration, first service in Vancouver re-established

Canadian Pacific Railway (CP Rail) resumed its operations on 23 November in the westernmost province of Canada, British Columbia (BC), between Kamloops and the port of Vancouver.

Loaded with grain and fuels, the first trains arrived in Vancouver one day later.

The rail service was previously interrupted due to the fact that a storm damaged 30 locations across CP's Thompson and Cascade subdivisions, resulting in significant loss of infrastructure in 20 of them.

Hence, hundreds of employees and contractors have been immediately deployed, working continuously to safely restore the rail line, according to the Calgary-based rail company.

This route is CP's busiest corridor handling a broad range of products and commodities, while it links the Port of Vancouver and BC with the rest of Canada and North America.

"As a railway, we recognise how the service we provide impacts people's lives and businesses, moving fuels we depend on, the food we eat, the vehicles we drive and the clothing we wear. Throughout this crisis, CP has closely coordinated and partnered with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to get highways open again," commented CP Rail in an announcement.

The company also added that it will work closely with customers and terminals to clear the backlogs as safely and efficiently as possible, in an effort to completely restore its operations.
