CN Right-of-Way Vegetation Control

CN 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 British Columbia. 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.

The vegetation management program will take place from June 3, 2019 to June 30, 2019.
