Project Highlights

Kerr Wood Leidal (KWL) has been engaged in an extensive infrastructure rehabilitation project within the Shoreline Trail Park Complex at the east end of the Burrard Inlet in the City of Port Moody.  The project’s scope includes the rehabilitation of over 1,550 meters of the Ioco Siphon low-pressure sanitary forcemain, improvements to approximately 1,600 meters of gravity sewer, widening of the Shoreline Park Multi-Use Path, replacement of the pedestrian bridge at Noons Creek, and enhancements to park amenities.

Our comprehensive field investigation, system review, CCTV condition assessment, stakeholder discussions, and detailed design development culminated in creating 90% design drawings and a precise Class 1 cost estimate.  The multi-use path, poised for replacement, is designed for mixed modalities, with a 3.3-meter paved width that aligns with the existing path to minimize excavation.

Innovative technologies were pivotal in this project, notably using UV-cured CIPP for the low-pressure sewer lining—a pioneering application in British Columbia that significantly reduces environmental and archaeological impacts.  By limiting the excavation to strategic access pits, KWL’s approach has safeguarded the park’s valuable ecological attributes and historical significance.  This innovative approach minimized the project’s environmental impact and has been recognized with the “2023 Trenchless Technology Project of the Year Rehab Honorable Mention,” reflecting KWL’s dedication to engineering excellence and innovation.

In close collaboration with the City of Port Moody, KWL is dedicated to enhancing the park’s value for residents and visitors.  Final project details, including community-inspired amenities and wayfinding elements, are being refined to ensure the park meets the highest standards of functionality and enjoyment.
