7. Quayside Drive & Laguna Court

Primarily operated by: SRY
Safety audit complete: Yes
Design complete: Yes
Construction status: Summer/ Fall 2018
Whistle Cessation Process: Step 6


The new railway signal equipment has been installed and is operational. In the interest of improving public safety at the crossing, the signal equipment was commissioned into service in mid-November 2018 in order to immediately address dangerous driver behavior at the crossing.

However, the crossing has not yet been approved for whistle cessation. The provincial railway safety regulator is conducting a review of the improvements that have been made to the crossing and the design of the crossing protection system before making a final decision on whistle cessation. In the meantime, the City is also continuing to work diligently with SRY to finalize the necessary documentation and to perform other work to ensure that all regulatory and operational requirements for safety have been satisfied to enable whistle cessation.
