Annual Railway Vegetation Management Program

print-logo May 14, 2020

Residents are advised that CN Rail is conducting vegetation control activities in the Municipality  between May and October 2020. A regularly updated schedule and FAQ will be available at www.cn.ca/vegetation.

If not managed properly, trees, brush or other vegetation can severely compromise public safety. Vegetation can impede the view motorists have of incoming trains, increasing the risk of crossing accidents. Additionally, unwanted vegetation can damage the integrity of the railway, interfere with signals and switches, contribute to track side fires, compromise employee safety, and reduce visibility for train crews at road crossings/train control signals and track side warning devices.

CN’s vegetation control program is a critical contributor to safe operations and these vegetation control measures assist in contributing to the overall safety of the community.
