TKTP: What's happening

Preferred option selected

We initially proposed five different options [PDF, 264 KB] for replacing the existing transmission line between Terrace and Kitimat. Based on the results of our studies and consultation feedback, we have decided to build a single new 287 kilovolt transmission line along the west side of the Kitimat Valley. This will ensure we can keep meeting your needs.

Where is this happening?

The proposed transmission line route is shown below. The route is not yet final and could change based on further studies and consultation.


When will construction start?

Construction of the new transmission line is scheduled to begin in 2017. Once the new line is operating reliably, the existing line on the east side of the valley will be removed.
