Tottenham Trains - All for Crossing Arms and a Quiet Zone (Whistle Cessation)

This petition had 41 supporters

The CP Rail Train line has trains running through Tottenham in the Town of New Tecumseth which can run through at ANY time of day from early morning to late at night, 24/7. The train must blow their very high-decibel whistles multiple times and sometimes for extended periods of time each time they cross at the 3rd, 4th (Mill Street) and 5th line (Nolan Rd.) of the town. Let's get the County and Municipality's attention and get them to do whatever it takes to stop the noise by making them put in crossing arms and creating quiet zone's at these intersection so that the train doesn't need to honk their horn overtime they cross these roads (Whistle Cessation). 

By jointly expressing interest in stopping these disturbing, obnoxious, loud train whistling noises - we can do something about this and STOP the whistle! I plan to submit this petition to New Tecumseth Mayor and Council, Transport Canada and the County of Simcoe if it gains enough steam, following this: Procedure for Train Whistling at Public Grade Crossings. For those wondering, this has no effect on the historic steam train running through the town.

NOTE: This petition is running alongside another similar petition to raise awareness and increase the likelihood that the town can successfully implement the train whistling cessation. Please also support the other petition here: Tottenham: Stop the Whistle. Please share amongst other members of the community, lets do something about this!
