The first year of infrastructure upgrades to Canadian Pacific’s North Main Line between Winnipeg and Edmonton is complete.
The $250-million, three-year project stretches approximately 850 miles spanning three provinces, and allows the railway to increase capacity and service reliability for customers, including agricultural, fertilizer and energy producers.
About 155 miles of track was completed during 2011, including rail and tie upgrades, new and extended sidings, and public crossing upgrades.
The remaining part of the project also calls for enhancement efficiencies at CP yards in Saskatchewan.
