    Purpose of this Information Session

  • Background

    What is a Terminal Development Plan?A Terminal Development Plan (TDP) is a document that will set out a long term vision of how a terminal should develop over time. TDPs will provide the framework for the phased implementation of strategies, actions and projects over the next 25 years.

    Why Prepare the Plan?BC Ferries is preparing a TDP to help better inform its capital spending and to ensure that BC Ferries develops its terminals in a sustainable, cost effective, organized, phased and efficient way. Over the next 25 years passenger volumes are likely to increase at the majority of our terminals. This growth in passenger traffic will need to be planned for to ensure the terminal can accommodate functional needs and future growth.

    Our Strategic GoalsOur strategic goals focus on the broad outcomes we will pursue to achieve our vision and mission.

    Efficient Operations

  • Context

    Denman East Terminal + Hornby Island TerminalThe Denman East Terminal is located on the southeast coast of Denman Island, within Gravelly Bay. Denman East is an unmanned terminal and provides ferry access to Hornby Island.

    The Hornby Island Terminal is located at Shingle Spit on Hornby Island and is an unmanned terminal that provides ferry access to Denman Island.

    The route (Route 22) is served by the Kahloke, a small ferry built in 1973.

    The vessel transits between Denman Island and Hornby Island several times a day, carrying passengers and vehicles on the 10-minute sailing.

  • Key issues identified so far

    In July 2017, a Working Group comprised of staff from key departments at BCFerries along with the Ferry Advisory Committee (FAC) came together to begin the process of creating a Terminal Development Plan. Through a series of meetings and workshops the working group has identified a number of key issues and opportunities which the TDP should address.

    Boat ramp in state of disrepair

    Tight bend for long vehicles exiting vessel terminal

    Potential safety issues from traffic lining up along road

    Holding compound too small

    No designated pick up/drop off area

    No short term parking

    No passenger real time information signage

    Sidewalk for pedestrians to access waiting room/washroom building

    1) Best maintains existing aesthetics

    2) Vehicle staging is less complex with only 2 lanes

    3) Sidewalk creates safe pedestrian access to washrooms

    1) No thru lane, access issues for priority vehicles & staff

    2) Pick-up/drop-off is far from berth & passenger building

    3) Access to staff parking may be difficult when busy

    4) Little to no accessibility improvement for all ages and a
