The District of Port Edward's ongoing work with CN Rail towards rail safety in the community will move back into motion this weekend, as work gets underway on more safety fencing through the district with Porpoise Drive the active work site in the days ahead.

In a Notice through the District of Port Edward Facebook page, District officials advised Boaters and pedestrians to take extra care if using the Port Edward boat launch on Porpoise Drive starting today

The advisory comes as fencing prep work gets set to commence and with a crew soon to be on site  installing the new safety fencing that is required for train whistling cessation.

The work is just the latest addition to railway safety work for the community and there should be much more to come in the months ahead, that after an announcement this week from the Federal Government for increased funding for a range of rail safety projects across the nation.

Rail Safety is also on the top of the list for Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Taylor Bachrach, who hosted a Town Hall on Thursday, part of his community engagement process leading up to Federal Transport Committee hearings to come in the weeks ahead.
