The project will also allow Alberta Midland Railway Terminal to handle unit trains up to 8,500 feet in length for either Canadian National or Canadian Pacific shippers.

These investments have significant economic benefits for Canadians, creating approximately 210 jobs during the construction period, and contributing to economic recovery from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The National Trade Corridors Fund is a merit based program which provides funding for the investment in critical assets that support economic activity, and the movement of goods and people in Canada. ?
