The Wilderness Committee has created a series of maps to track the route of the proposed – and existing – Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline and associated oil tanker route. Check out the maps below for detailed views of the pipeline route as it crosses BC, through critical salmon-bearing watersheds, the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland, as well as the tanker route passing through the delicate ecosystem of the Salish Sea.

Proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline route impacting Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area (updated Nov. 2014)
Interactive Map: Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline Project
(Focused on Burnaby Mountain, Burnaby and Coquitlam)
The existing pipeline is shown in yellow, the proposed preferred new pipeline corridor route is shown in red and alternate routes being considered are in light purple. The exact final route has not been completely decided, but the routes depicted are based on maps submitted in Kinder Morgan's application to the National Energy Board in December 2013. This map was updated in August 2014 with "revised" corridor route sections shown in orange through Burnaby (including Burnaby Mountain) and Coquitlam. Also shown in dark green are BC parks that will be potentially impacted by the new Kinder Morgan pipeline (according to BC government documents), and in light green other parks that may be potentially impacted by the pipeline. Additional icons depict some sites visited recently by the Wilderness Committee on Burnaby Mountain, including the concerned citizens/defenders camp (on site of proposed test borehole #2) and a site cleared of trees by Kinder Morgan contractors (proposed test drill borehole site #1) and a helicopter staging area. Also shown are Kinder Morgan's Burnaby tank farm and Westridge Marine terminals, and the boundary of Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area. Click on icons and terminals for more info.

BC Parks and Protected Areas Potentially Affected by the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline
Note: these parks will have (or already have some new pipe, such as Jasper and Mt Robson) within them or adjacent or very close, such that they may be "potentially" impacted by Kinder Morgan new pipeline, including: by a bitumen spill/pipe rupture and/or being traversed by new pipe.
