The company, in partnership with Nak’azdli Whut’en, has opened the largest free-span temporary bridge in the world for the construction of its pipeline.
The temporary bridge will provide workers access to remote sections of the project’s 670 km right-of-way.
Coastal GasLink said collaboration is at the heart of its commitment to local communities, which its partnership with Nak’azdli Whut’en demonstrates.
Nak’azdli Whut’en’s Natural Resources Department and Chief and Council were assured the project could be completed safely and with minimal disturbance to the river, salmon and fish habitat.
The prime contractor for the construction was SA Energy Group, with its Project Manager Georges Guerette saying almost a year of consultation on drawing and designs allowed the team to complete the structure and minimise its impact on the river and on the fish, in support of the First Nations.
The design of the temporary bridge evolved through multiple rounds of reconsiderations to become a free-span arch.
