Canadian Pacific Railway Limited says freight trains will resume running between Vancouver and Kamloops from Tuesday afternoon, as crews worked to repair rail damage from last week’s floods.

The CP said hundreds of people worked round the clock to repair tracks at 30 locations, in an effort to restore rail service on the carrier’s busiest corridor. The damage broke the rail link to the port of Vancouver, the nation’s largest maritime shipping hub.

Record rain on 14 November caused flooding and landslides in southern British Columbia, destroying railway bridges, roads and other critical infrastructure.

“As CP resumes operations and moves from restoration to recovery, CP will work closely with customers and terminals to clear the backlog as quickly and efficiently as possible,” the company said in a news release.

“While the railroad has reopened, a difficult road ahead remains for B.C. residents and businesses affected by the incident. CP continues to work closely with local and BC officials and Indigenous communities in Fraser Canyon to coordinate the distribution of critical materials, equipment, food, and fuel.
