UPDATE - NOTICE TO RESIDENTS – VEGETATION MANAGEMENT (JULY 2019)
VIA Rail Canada would like to notify residents of upcoming maintenance on the railway line in your community.
Specifically, the work will include herbicide application within the confines of the railway right-of-way to hinder brush overgrowth.
To manage corridor vegetation and ensure the safety and security of operations.
For more information about vegetation management, please see: https://www.viarail.ca/sites/all/files/media/pdfs/About_VIA/vegetation_EN.pdf
VIA Rail Canada will be conducting the necessary work during train operating hours, in the daytime.
NOTE: Notice had initially been given in May 2019 but due to unforeseen circumstances, work had to be postponed.
The work will take place on the Smiths Falls subdivision, within the confines of the railway right-of-way, with the exception of the area highlighted in blue which will not be sprayed (see maps). Areas immediately beyond this segment are planned to be sprayed on Friday July 12th 2019.
