Early work begins on Belleville terminal redevelopment
GOVERNMENT OF B.C. — The first phase of work has begun on the Belleville Terminal redevelopment project which connects ferry riders from Victoria, B.C. to Washington State.

VICTORIA – Phase one has begun on the redevelopment of the ferry terminal serving Victoria and Washington State.

A contract for the first phase of the Steamship Temporary Terminal portion of the Belleville Terminal redevelopment project in Victoria, B.C. has been awarded to Willow Spring Construction Ltd. Early work on the terminal begins immediately, with estimated completion in fall 2024, a release said.

The contract for phase one wharf modifications has been awarded to Pacific Industrial & Marine Lt. and offsite work on the wharf is about to begin near Cowichan Bay with work at the terminal expected to begin this summer.

“This terminal represents a critical trade junction for our region and the country as a whole. Moving forward with this project to transform it into an improved, modern entry point will not only generate economic growth on both sides of the border, it will make travel more convenient and enjoyable for the people travelling through this hub every year,” said B.C. Minister of Transportation Rob Fleming in the release.

The project is also advancing toward the phase two permanent upgrades to the terminal and the shortlisted proponents invited to participate in a request for proposal include EllisDon Corporation, KL Belleville Terminal Partners and Pomerleau Inc., the release said.

The terminal acts as an international gateway for goods, services and passengers and the upgrade brings the terminal into compliance with the Canada-U.S. Land, Rail, Marine and Air Transport Pre-clearance Agreement.

The budget for the project is $303.9 million with a $41.6 million federal contribution, the release said, and is expected to be complete in time for the 2028 tourist season.
