OmniTrax To Start Rail Line Repairs This Month

According to a report, OmniTrax has said that they will start repairs on the washed-out rail line to Churchill this month.

 

The Denver-based corporation was ordered to repair the line by the Canadian Transportation Agency in June, and the company has said they have "made progress in soliciting four reputable and experienced contractors" to do the repair work.

 

The order from the CTA says that the US company, who bought the rail line 1997, must provide monthly progress reports on the repairs, and that if OmniTrax can't come up with the money for the repairs they have to put the line up for sale at a price set by Ottawa.

 

The recent report comes as talks regarding the sale of the rail line, and the Port of Churchill, seem to have stalled.
