Canadian National, a freight railway transportation and logistics solution provider, intends to infuse C$615 million ($460.5 million) in network infrastructure in eastern Canada this year.
Under the investment plan, CN is spending $239.6 million in Ontario on several expansion projects, including adding capacity near its Brampton intermodal terminal by building a satellite intermodal facility.
Additionally, the company is also investing in infrastructure and equipment at the Brampton terminal and making improvements at its Toronto auto compound. It will then invest $183.5 million in Quebec and $33.7 million in New Brunswick.
Moreso, CN is further committing $3.7 million in Nova Scotia to implement technologies such as autonomous track inspection, distributed air cars and automated inspection portals. It will also invest in completing maintenance projects throughout the eastern provinces.
