City of New Westminster and Southern Railway
host whistle cessation meeting

New Westminster, BC – On July 9, 2014, the City of New Westminster and Southern Railway are hosting an information meeting regarding whistle cessation and community railway safety along the Southern Railway corridor, including Queensborough.

In August 2012, a Railway Advisory Committee was established to examine the issue of train whistling in New Westminster. As the community has grown, the impact of train whistle noise on livability has increased.  A joint sub-committee has been established to maintain forward momentum towards whistle cessation implementation.

The railway whistle cessation meeting will provide an update to the community of progress being made on these matters along with anticipated timelines for completion.

Information Meeting Details:
Wednesday, July 9, 2014
7:00 pm
Rozzini’s Restaurant, 211 Ewen Drive, New Westminster

For further information, please contact 604-527-4523.
