In 2014, Lafarge completed the construction of the Mufford rail overpass located on Highway 10 in Langley, British Columbia, marking the official completion of all nine Robert Banks Rail Corridor (RBRC) infrastructure improvement projects in the Lower Mainland.
The RBRC Program is a $307-million dollar partner initiative designed to relieve traffic congestion, improve road reliability and significantly improve the transport of international freight and Canadian exports shipped through Lower Mainland communities.
Langley has grown extensively in the last two decades, but that also means it has needed a few infrastructural changes to accommodate the residents. In 2014, the Township of Langley, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, and the Canadian Pacific Railway decided to focus on traffic concerns, planning an overpass that would boost overall traffic management for freight transportation.
However, they needed to work with experienced partners who had ample experience with the project category and the additional tasks the operation would entail. The project had a $51 million budget, requiring bridge, road, and utility construction.
