OTTAWA, May 22 /CNW Telbec/ - VIA Rail Canada has undertaken track
maintenance work on approximately ten kilometers of track located in the
Billings Bridge and Mooney's Bay areas of south-west Ottawa along the Rideau
River. The work is scheduled to take place from May 20 to May 31. In order not
to interfere with daytime passenger train movements, the work must be
performed overnight between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
While work-related noise is inevitable, individual residents should not
be subjected to it for more than three nights as the crew and machinery
progress along the track.
The work is part of major investments made by VIA to improve service in
the Ottawa region.
VIA apologizes for any inconvenience that may be caused to local
residents. For further information, residents may call VIA Customer Relations
