Work on the CP Railway tracks to be done overnight

Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) will be doing work on the railway tracks behind Baily, Wavell and Holland roads in the evenings and overnight periods of approximately Wednesday, July 29 to Monday, August 3. This will regrettably impact and inconvenience anyone living in that vicinity.

Please note that the City of Côte Saint-Luc does not have jurisdiction over work performed on the railway tracks.

CP is replacing the ties, which are the pieces of wood that connect the two rails. This work is part of their ongoing investment in their tracks. CP is starting work on Tuesday, July 28 in Lasalle and moving east through Montreal West, Côte Saint-Luc, Hampstead, TMR and Outremont.

Because the AMT commuter trains use the track during the day, CP says it must do the work between 7:30pm and 2:30am. CP acknowledges this work will be noisy and may be disruptive to residents. You may hear motor sounds of heavy machinery in operation and idling, metal percussion, compacting sounds from tamper equipment, voices of 25 to 35 people, and the beep sounds from trucks that are backing up.

If you have questions or concerns about the work, contact Canadian Pacific at 1-800-766-7912

  Travaux de nuit effectués par le Canadien Pacifique 

Le Chemin de fer Canadien Pacifique (CP) effectuera des travaux sur les rails situés derrière les rues Baily, Wavell et Holland, en soirée et durant la nuit, du mercredi 29 juillet au lundi 3 aout approximativement.

Il importe de souligner que la Ville de Côte Saint-Luc n’a pas compétence en matières des chemins de fer.

Le CP procède au remplacement des traverses, qui sont les pièces de bois reliant les deux rails. Ces travaux font partie de l’investissement actuel de la compagnie dans son réseau de voies ferrées. Le CP commence les travaux le mardi 28 juillet à LaSalle et se déplacera ensuite à Montréal-Ouest, Côte Saint-Luc, Hampstead, Mont-Royal et Outremont.

Puisque les trains de banlieue de l’AMT utilisent la voie durant la journée, CP a indiqué qu’ils doivent effectuer les travaux entre 19 h 30 et 2 h 30. La compagnie reconnaît que ces travaux peuvent être bruyants et dérangeants pour les résidants. Il se peut que vous entendiez le bruit de moteurs provenant de machinerie lourde en activité ou tournant au ralenti, de matériel de percussion de métal, d’outils de compactage, le bruit de conversation de 25 à 35 travailleurs, et les avertisseurs sonores des camions qui reculent.

Si vous avez des questions ou des inquiétudes concernant ces travaux, veuillez contacter le Canadien Pacifique au1-800-766-7912 ou

Hey Mike,

As a city councillor, YOU are the one who should be speaking with CP if there arts any complaints.
The railway as you said and I quote :

"Please note that the City of Côte Saint-Luc does not have jurisdiction over work performed on the railway tracks."

Rather than "pass the buck", you can make yourself look good by printing your responses from "disrupted citizens" from the CP noise, and CP may actually do something from a "higher up".

I should know. CP did absolutely nothing after I voiced my concern to Cp about various issues, and the same when I voiced my complaints to my city Councillor Dita Bourku.

Mr. Stacey Bindman

My previous comment was meant to say that nothing was done even after I wrote Dita Berku, who then said that she wrote or spoke to CP about my complaints.
