Project Description 

PNR RailWorks performs daily inspection and maintenance on signals and track on 246 miles of GO Transit track and related property throughout Ontario. 

Project Scope 

PNR RailWorks crews have performed track inspection and maintenance services for GO Transit since 2001.  Crews are imbedded with GO Transit operations staff to perform a range of maintenance duties on 246 miles of GO Transit track.  All work is performed in conjunction with CN dispatching and train crews while train operations are underway on the rail lines.

PNR RailWorks track crews perform inspection and maintenance services in accordance with CN general operating instructions for the following infrastructure:
• 246 miles of track
• 117 public crossings
• 169 switches
• 5 layover/storage yards
• 27 platforms

In addition to these responsibilities, PNR RailWorks collaborates with GO Transit on the status of track and signal infrastructure priorities and advises on longer-term capital expenditures.  They also perform snow removal services at 27 platforms during the winter season and coordinate a leaf contamination management program to ensure effective operation of train detection and tractive force equipment.
