VIA Rail plans for CTC on Guelph sub?

By shost at 9:46 pm on Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Some readers may be aware of my issues with or North Mainline, dark territory, and the amount of passenger traffic now on the line..

And then a reader sent this in today:

“VIA is improving safety and capacity on the Guelph Subdivision with the introduction of a Centralized Traffic Control system (Wayside Signals) for the control of train movements, upgraded passing sidings plus new and upgraded crossing warning systems and security fencing. These changes allow for three additional round trips on the Subdivision (which is part of the busy Toronto-London-Sarnia route).

  • CTC
  • new sidings
  • fencing
  • equip sidings with dual control remotely controlled switch machines
  • warning devices, gates, lights and cantilevers”

Questions:

  • Is this funded?
  • This has been planned for a few years, but has this plan been reactivated?

It looks like it is indeed funded from the 2007/2009 annoucements. If you see the chart on http://www.viarail.ca/en/about-via-rail/capital-investment/about-cip you see they planned on the work for 2012-2013.
