Federal Government Commits to Update Rail Crossings

The federal government has pledged $10.9 million to update and fix more than 400 railway crossings across Canada. The new funding will complement $143 million in funding that was announced as part of the 2016 federal budget. The new funding will go towards flashing lights and bells, gate barriers, upgrades to brighter LED light bulbs, and technical upgrades to link rail crossing signals with traffic signals. 93 of the crossings to be upgraded are in Ontario.
