Thank you for your patience as we continue planning the deconstruction and removal of the barge from English Bay. Deconstructing the barge is complex due to the location and condition of the vessel. Removal is being carefully planned and includes consultation with industry experts and partners including the City of Vancouver, the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Canadian Coast Guard and the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
Throughout the planning, deconstruction and removal process, we are committed to proactive measures to ensure there are no negative environmental impacts and minimal impact on park activities. At this time, we can confirm the seawall will remain open during deconstruction.
We are working with our partners and hope to have a deconstruction start date to share soon. Thank you for your ongoing patience.
