CN RIGHT-OF-WAY VEGETATION CONTROL

COMMUNITY NOTICE

Annual Vegetation Management Program

CN is required to clear its rights-of-way from any vegetation that may pose

a safety hazard. Vegetation on railway rights-of-way, if left uncontrolled, can

contribute to trackside fires and impair proper inspection of track

infrastructure.

As such, for safe railway operations, the annual vegetation control program

will be carried out on CN rail lines in the province of Alberta. A certified

applicator will be applying herbicides on and around the railway tracks (mainly

the graveled area/ballast). All product requirements for setbacks in the vicinity

of dwellings, aquatic environments and municipal water supplies will be met.

At this time, we expect that the program will take place from April

29, 2019 to July 31, 2019.

updated schedule.
