Puslinch Mayor Seeks Better Deal With Guelph Over Railway Crossing Improvements

‘We don’t feel that Puslinch’s taxpayers should be subsidizing a City of Guelph enterprise:’ Puslinch Mayor

Puslinch is looking for a favour from Guelph as the township seeks to negotiate their portion of the bill on improvements to a Guelph Junction Railway crossing.

At a Puslinch council meeting this week, mayor James Seeley said the township has been informed it needs to pay $80,000 for upgrades to a railway crossing at Hume Road.

In a follow-up phone call, Seeley explained that these improvements are split with the Guelph Junction Railway which is owned by the City of Guelph.

“From my understanding, that’s to increase the speed and frequency of their trains hauling freight from their Campbellville location to the City of Guelph,” Seeley said.
