Canadian Pacific Railway announced that its intermodal train service to and from the Port of Vancouver will restart on Tuesday. Repairs to the damaged tracks were completed earlier than expected.

Canadian National Railway expects to resume service on the Kamloops-Vancouver corridor late Wednesday after work on the damages progressed solidly over the weekend.

Severe flooding occurred just over a week ago, cutting off rail service from the port. 

“The following 10 days will be critical,” Keith Creel, Canadian Pacific’s president and CEO, said. “As we move from response to recovery to full-service resumption, our focus will be on working with customers to get the supply chain back in sync.”

The port authority told customers that as of Monday, ocean containers face delays of five to seven days before leaving marine terminals, up from a dwell of three to five days last week.
