No comfort in CPR track upgrade timeline:Worley

The community in RDKB Area B is not comforted by CP Rail’s timeline to fix the track running from Castlegar to Trail.

So says Director Linda Worley after she and MP Alex Atamanenko help a public meeting with the national transportation giant in Trail last week.

The section of track between the two municipalities has restrictions not allowing speeds over 10 miles per hour because it needs repair.

CPR indicated the fix will happen sometime in 2015.

She says she is not naive enough to think that they can do anything to rush the repairs.

Residents along the track around Trail added to complaints already made by Castlegar citizens regarding changes to CPR’s West Kootenay Operations. That now sees a train travelling through the area blaring its whistle through the dead of night.
