It was a busy year in 2021 on the Kemano T2 Project. Tl’ughus, the tunnel boring machine broke through to complete its 7.6 kilometre journey to finish a 16 kilometre second tunnel that was started in the early 1990s.

And while we speak a lot about the new bored tunnel and the impressive tl’ughus, we also have a whole team dedicated to refurbishing a part of the tunnel that was bored in the 1990s. The work comprises thorough cleaning of the rock, rock bolting, and shotcrete spraying, among others.

You can read more about this work, our Kemano bears and our dedicated team in the latest project newsletter.

What does it mean to be a community builder?

We believe it starts with a shared foundation of trust; focusing on people first to build a stronger economy for all British Columbians; and invest in a more sustainable and resilient future for our communities and our shared environment.

Communities, after all, are where our people, our greatest assets, live, build families, and will thrive for generations. How we, as industry, invest and intersect with communities will define our future success.

It is our commitment to continue to find innovative ways to help our people and our communities thrive, and to embrace a collaborative approach to this work.

Check out the video we developed with our many community partners from Kitimat to Vanderhoof.
