Update (Mar.18, 2021)

The twinning of the Burrard Inlet Rail Line has been deferred by CN Rail, possibly to coordinate with the construction of the underpass at Venables. The Centerm Port expansion is on schedule to be completed by 2022 and will likely result in increased rail traffic. 

The City will be launching a pilot project this Spring to explore options for closing the at-grade crossings at Cordova and Raymur to eliminate the frequent crossing alarm bells that have created a noise nuisance for nearby residents. A final design is expected by Fall 2021, with construction to be completed by Winter 2022.

There are no immediate plans to close the at-grade crossing at Parker, as it is a critical truck access point for Produce Row and potentially the hospital site.
