This railway crossing in Chauvin, left) is controlled in part by mechanical arms that drop down when a train approaches. It was printed in last week’s paper (PN April 29) that the federal government was supplying some new funding for railway crossing improvements. This year, Transport Canada will provide over $9.7 million for improvements at over 600 railway crossings across the country through its grade crossing improvement program. Eligible railway crossings are upgraded based on factors such as traffic volume and accident history. Improvements may include installing flashing lights and bells, installing gate barriers, linking crossing signals to traffic signals, upgrading light bulbs to brighter LED lights, or adding new circuits or timing devices. Transport Canada finances up to 50 per cent of the total eligible costs of grade crossing improvements (to a maximum of $550,000 per project), with the balance provided by the railways and/or road authorities. None of the crossings at or near Provost including east on Highway 899 have gate barriers. ©Provost News Photo.
