Grade Crossing Regulatory Proposal
The Railway Association of Canada was consulted on the proposed regulatory proposal to increase safety at Canada’s federally regulated grade crossings and to reduce the incidence of deaths, injuries, property damage and environmental damage.
Railway crossing safety has been a key focus for rail over the past thirty years and we will continue to work with governments on reducing fatalities and injuries, particularly at grade crossings.
The proposed new regulations were published in the Canada Gazette on Saturday. We are reading the proposal and will provide our comments to Transport Canada in due time.
