Over 25 residents attended the Coastal GasLink Open House at the Houston Seniors Centre last Monday. The key topic was the proposed work camp nearby.

Pipeline traffic not to use Buck Flats Road

Traffic from the proposed work camp south of Buck Falls will use the Morice River Road for access and not Buck Flats.

The proposed Coastal GasLink pipeline is planning a work camp near Buck Falls but says they will not use Buck Flats Road for access.

At a Houston Open House last Monday, Project Director Greg Cano said all pipeline traffic will use the Morice River Road.

“We will work with our camp providers and contractors on a traffic management plan and… we will tell them – Tell them, not ask them – that they cannot use Buck Flats Road,” Cano said.

He says orientation for everyone coming into the work camps will tell them not to come into the camp on Buck Flats Road.

“We will tell our contractors and our workers, and there will be penalties if they do violate the rule we have,” he said.

He says all contractor and TransCanada vehicles will have identification numbers.

Members of the public can call Coastal GasLink if they see a violation, Cano said.
