-30- Forensic Engineering Retained to Complete Rail Crossing Safety Reviews for Ontario Municipalities

December 2, 2016   by -30- Forensic Engineering

-30- Forensic Engineering is proud to announce its Road Safety Team has been retained to complete rail crossing safety reviews for the municipalities of Mississauga, Region of Durham, Belleville, Woodstock, Cambridge and Waterloo.

In June 2015, the Canadian government enacted new regulations regarding level rail crossings under the Railway Safety Act in response to a steady increase in rail incidents since 2011. Previous to the new regulations, the applicable guide standards provided guidance but were not mandatory. As a result, compliance rates were only 30-50% at public crossings.
