Coastal GasLink wrapped up another month of construction with incredible progress.
Section 5, a 54 kilometre-long section north of Vanderhoof to south of Burns Lake, achieved 100% pipe installation last month. Section 5 was completed safely and on time by Nadleh-Macro, a partnership established in 2022 and comprised of Nadleh Whut’en First Nation and Macro Pipelines. Five sections of the 670-kilometre project route have now completed pipe installation activities (Sections 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6).

The goal is to bring the land to as close to its original state as possible.
