Ottawa, ON: Concerns at noise associated with grade-separation works

14 May

The project to grade-separate the Greenbank Road level crossing in Barrhaven is drawing extensive criticism for the noise associated with constructing the highway underpass. The terrain dictates the use of blasting which is overlaid by the requirements that train horns are sounded as the trains approach the temporary level crossing near the construction site.Local councillors and residents are speaking-out against the noise although, some admit, there is no real alternative to blasting and likewise the price of having the temporary crossing is an increase in train horn use. The new road will be substantially complete by the end of the 2016 construction season.
