Coastal GasLink rang in the New Year with several significant developments that pave the way for continued construction momentum in 2020, including installing first sections of pipe later this summer. 

Construction across the route resumed the week of Jan. 6 following a holiday break. With 32 per cent of the route now cleared, various construction activities are underway across the 670-kilometre route and will increase over the coming months. You can expect to see pipe and equipment deliveries, additional workforce accommodation sites established to house arriving workers, and the beginning of pipe assembly this summer.
