Canadian government announces projects to reduce climate change impacts on rail
Canada’s Transport Minister has announced up to $5.4 million for 20 projects across Canada as part of the Railway Climate Change Adaptation Program, an initiative of the Railway Safety Improvement Program. This is reported by Railway Supply magazine, citing Global Railway Review.
The Railway Climate Change Adaptation Program supports research, development and implementation of innovative technologies, tools and approaches to better identify and mitigate the growing risks and impacts of climate change on Canada’s rail sector. Various recipients selected for funding will evaluate and implement innovative designs and technologies to address adaptation challenges such as flooding, fires, permafrost degradation, and extreme operating temperatures.

Canada maintains one of the safest rail systems in the world through the collaborative efforts of partners including governments, railroad companies and communities. This funding will help address the effects of climate change on the rail sector as well as create new jobs.
Since the program’s inception, nearly 800 projects have been funded across Canada, improving safety at railroad crossings and on railroad tracks and increasing public confidence in Canada’s rail system.
