Comments from Port of Vancouver in Journal of Commerce, October 8, 2012

”Port Metro Vancouver has been asking the B.C. Government to address the long standing concern that the tunnel presents a barrier to continued growth in the Fraser River terminals, in particular to Fraser Surrey Docks.

The single biggest challenge that the tunnel represents to ocean-going vessels is related to ship ‘draft’, the depth of water required for those vessels to transit the river.”
