Railway crossings compliance

The Province of British Columbia has adopted the federal Grade Crossings Regulation and Grade Crossings Standards, which came into effect in 2014. In light of impacts from COVID-19, the Province has extended the timeline for municipalities and provincial railways to bring their existing grade crossings into compliance.

The new deadline is January 1, 2028 for municipalities to ensure that existing grade crossings of provincial railways comply with the regulations.

Senior local government staff are invited to attend an online information session about the role of municipal road authorities in implementing the new provincial railway grade crossing regulations, as well as the timelines, compliance requirements, and federal funding opportunities. The information session will be held Thursday, March 25, 2021, from 1:30 – 3:00 pm.

Please register in advance for this information session, presented by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, and Technical Safety BC.
