  • other yard and siding improvements to increase capacity and reliability for VIA passenger trains
  • signal, structural, grading and drainage work
  • upgrades to many public, farm and private crossings signalized automatic warning systems that enhance safety
  • this project is being executed in conjunction with major station improvements on the Kingston Subdivision that carry with them the same objective – increased capacity
