Collaboration protects the environment and delivers benefits to Nak’azdli Whut’en – Coastal Gaslink

Aug 11 2020

Coastal GasLink, in partnership with Nak’azdli Whut’en, recently opened the largest free-span temporary bridge in the world across the Stuart River in northeast B.C.

The temporary bridge will help provide Coastal GasLink workers access to remote sections of the project’s 670-kilometre right-of-way.

At Coastal GasLink, collaboration is at the heart of our commitment to local communities. In partnering with Coastal GasLink, Nak’azdli Whut’en was able to hold Coastal GasLink to its commitment to construct to the highest environmental standards.

“Through almost a year of consultation on drawings and designs, we ended up at an almost 800-foot structure to minimize our impact on the river and on the fish, and to support Nak’azdli Whut’en and the rest of the First Nations north of Stuart Lake,” said Georges Guerette, Project Manager for SA Energy Group, Coastal GasLink’s prime contractor leading construction in Sections 3 and 4.
