Mr. Davies undertook an analysis of freight markets and operations for a study led by IBI Group to evaluate existing and potential uses of the former Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway (currently operating as Southern Railway of Vancouver Island).

The scope of this portion of the study included a review of the Island’s industrial base, and available data on current freight volumes, and design of survey forms and analysis of the results of a roadside truck survey to gather additional data. Based on this analysis, the potential for increased volumes of rail freight was assessed.
