Sher­brooke wants Cen­tral Maine & Que­bec out

Stanstead Journal - - LENOXVILLE NEWS - Sher­brooke

the com­ing days, the City of Sher­brooke will be ask­ing the Cen­tral Maine & Que­bec Rail­way com­pany to stop stor­ing and han­dling train cars on the rail loop line par­al­lel to Venise and de la Riviere streets, in the Rock For­est-Saint-Elie-Deauville Bor­ough.

mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil made this de­ci­sion be­cause of the noise caused by the move­ment of the wag­ons, which was dis­turb­ing the peace of cit­i­zens, and be­cause of the risks as­so­ci­ated with the park­ing and han­dling of rail cars in an ur­ban set­ting. The res­i­dents are also wor­ried about the com­mon oc­cur­rence of dan­ger­ous prod­ucts. More­over, th­ese rail­cars cause vis­ual pol­lu­tion and traf­fic prob­lems.

use of this loop line by Cen­tral Maine & Que­bec Rail­way has been go­ing on for about a year, just af­ter the ac­qui­si­tion of this por­tion of rail line that was once used by Mon­treal Maine & At­lantic.
