Project Benefits

Roberts Bank Rail Corridor GIP Project Benefits

These projects have benefits to terminals and cargo owners, including:

  • Accommodating anticipated growth in rail and road traffic by increasing capacity
  • Eliminating road/rail conflicts and congestion at key bottleneck locations
  • Increased velocity along the rail corridor to support operational efficiencies

In addition, they will also provide local quality of life and environmental benefits, including:

  • Reduced traffic congestion during rail operations
  • Reduced congestion on key road corridors
  • Reduced idling at level crossings and congestion on some parallel facilities
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reduced direct exposure of road users and trains, with corresponding safety benefits
  • Increased agricultural productivity through improved vehicle movements
  • Enhanced bicycle network connections
  • Enhanced access to emergency service providers (police, fire, ambulance)
  • Reduced noise pollution as train whistling is no longer required for extended stretches on the corridor
