Railway Crossings

Railway Crossings relative to subdivisions are governed by Technical Safety BC, Transport Canada and the Canadian Transportation Agency. The Approving Officer does not approve the final subdivision plans until the Ministry receives the agreement from the railway company, or a decision authorizing the level grade crossing and no objections have been filed in response to a Public Notice in accordance with the Railway Safety Act.

Proposed railway crossings must meet all applicable requirements of the Safety Standards, Safety Autority,Canada Transportation and the Railway Safety Acts and supporting standards, regulations and guidelines before work can commence.
