Construction has begun on the interior of the new Provincial Distribution Centre in Colwood, which B.C. Transit said will support their growth over the next 25 years.

As B.C. Transit integrates Umo, NextRide and electric buses, the distribution centre will support the need for space too store technology parts and accommodate future inventory needs.

Under the management of Omicron Canada, the work will be confined to the inside of three warehouses at the Wildcat Industrial Complex on Allandale Road to ensure traffic and pedestrian safety.

The nearly 30,000-square-foot warehouse space is expected to be complete by Spring 2025 according to a news release from B.C. Transit.

The centre is funded through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program in which the federal government is investing just over $2 million in infrastructure upgrades, the province will invest $8.4 million and local governments will invest $10.1 million. The total combined investment for the project is $20.6 million.
