Abstract: Work is currently underway on construction of a new 17.3 km surface grade and 16.5 km of new tunnels for westbound rail traffic on the CP Rail mainline between Golden and Revelstoke, B. C. Most of the work is being conducted in Glacier National Park. Detailed plans and contract specifications for the reclamation of approximately 150 ha of surface disturbance were developed with the objectives of controlling erosion, providing a permanent vegetation cover and reintegrating the disturbed lands with the surrounding terrain to reduce the visual impact of the project. The plans were based on results from two years of reclamation research and were submitted to and approved by Parks Canada and the Federal Environmental Assessment Panel established for the project. Stringent reclamation standards have been established for the project. Major reclamation work was initiated with construction in 1934 with an extensive program of soil salvage and use, seeding and woody shrub planting.
