Port Metro Vancouver (PMV) has been marketing a key benefit of the proposed Low Level Road Improvement Project (LLRP) to residents over the past year. This benefit is train whistle cessation. This change will be welcomed by residents who have been plagued by incessant train whistles for the last 3 years.
The LLRP will close 3 at-grade crossings. The closure of the Neptune-Cargill crossing will also bring a new overpass which will increase the overall safety level at this crossing for everyone including residents, bicyclists, drivers, and port employees. The LLRP will also close the St. Patricks and St. Andrews at-grade crossings which will bring much needed safety improvements as well.
