Cease the Constant Train Whistling in Tottenham Community!

This petition had 43 supporters

Honeyfield Community is a new subdivision in Tottenham, at the intersection of Tottenham Road and 3rd Line. Our community consists of many young couples with small children. CN Railway has a track that runs right behind our subdivision. It is a main crossing area, which means the train can come by up to 25 times within a 24-hour period! Each and every time it comes by, it sounds the whistle several times, disrupting our daily enjoyment and waking us up throughout the night, including the little ones.

This petition is to voice our concerns to Council and request that as per Section 23.1 of the Railway Safety Act, the area be reviewed by the appropriate departments and deemed as a Quiet Zone. This would cease the train whistling in our area, and add more reasonable safety features such as stop signs, advisory signs and gates at the crossing. This is a new and rapidly growing community who have chosen to make Tottenham their home.

We should all benefit from the basic right to enjoyment without constant noise and a good night's sleep without the booming sound of the train every hour!
