Over half of the 1,100 km Trans Mountain Expansion Project has now been approved.
The pipeline expansion project, set to be undertaken by two Fort St John companies, hit 56 percent approval yesterday with the rest holding out for April hearings.
Along with the announcement of the hearings, the National Energy Board also released detailed route information of Segment 5 of the pipeline, which will run through the Peace Region.
The segment will run between Kamloops and Hope, with Fort St John based Surerus-Murphy being one of two companies set to build the first portion of the segment.
The project was approved by the government in 2016, but will need to satisfy all NEB pre-construction conditions before moving forward.
