In an effort to improve the flow of their operations within the City of Melville, CN Rail will proceed with railway upgrades.
CN sent a letter to the City saying they will start construction in the coming weeks, more specifically, building additional track.
Mayor Walter Streelasky says he’ll be keeping in touch with CN Executive Vice-President of Corporate Services Sean Finn about this project saying he will be monitoring it very closely and following up on necessary things that may or may not come up.
Streelasky says CN repeatedly said they expect big things in Melville, and were inquiring about things like housing availability.
CN mentioned in it’s letter they are going to improve it’s network capacity and fluidity by hiring crews and acquiring locomotives.
