CRD investing heavily in unused rail corridor
More taxpayer’s money is being invested in the still idle E&N rail line.
The Capital Regional District agreed yesterday to spend $500,000 to improve rail way crossing as part of a trail project.
CRD Director Judy Brownoff says it must be done.
“The issue for someone like the CRD is that when we are building the trail through the same corridor-we are having to incur thousands and thousands of dollars because it’s still classified as a rail corridor.”
Over $3 million has been spent to fix crossings for the trail project with 10 more to be done.
