OTTAWA, Aug. 23, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - VIA Rail Canada will be replacing ties on some 11 kilometers of track in the Nepean and Barrhaven areas, as part of its standard maintenance program, starting this coming Saturday, August 25.
The work will be carried out overnight in order not to interfere with regular train operations. Efforts will be made to keep noise to a minimum.
The work will be done in three stages including tie distribution, tie change-out and track surfacing, and tie pick-up. All work is scheduled to be complete at the beginning of November.
The work will begin just west of Prince of Wales Drive and finish just east of Highway 416.
VIA apologizes in advance for any inconvenience that this work may cause. Should you have any questions or comments, please call VIA's toll-free inquiry line at 1-866-757-6778.
