CN announced its planned C$3.2 billion capital program will
focus on key capacity projects to meet growing freight demand and
continued investment in infrastructure maintenance to enhance
safety and efficiency.
For the third straight year, CN plans to invest approximately
C$1.6 billion on track and railway infrastructure maintenance to
support safe and efficient operations. The planned work includes
the replacement of 2.1 million rail ties and more than 600 miles of
rail, plus work on bridges and other general track maintenance.
Approximately C$400 million is expected to be spent on
equipment, including the acquisition of new high horsepower
locomotives. A further C$800 million is targeted towards
initiatives to increase capacity and enable growth, such as track
infrastructure expansion, investments in yards and in intermodal
terminals; and on information technology to improve safety
performance, operational efficiency and customer service.
More specifically, major capacity and equipment investments
include:
Sixty new GE locomotives, the first deliveries from a three-year
order of 200 new units
Double track and siding extensions in the West Coast to Chicago
corridors
Intermodal equipment and infrastructure in Toronto, Memphis,
Tenn., Joliet, Ill., and other terminals
The Company plans to invest approximately C$400 million in
2018 on the implementation of Positive Train Control (PTC) along
3,500 route miles of its U.S. network. CN plans to invest a total of
US$1.4 billion on PTC capital expenditures by 2020.

To keep Canada's travel system competitive and efficient, the
Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport announced on
March 19, 2018, that the Government of Canada will provide funding
for VIA Rail to replace its fleet in the Quebec City-Windsor Corridor.
As it is reaching the end of its useful life, the fleet in this corridor
must be replaced to help maintain passenger safety for the next
30 years. Budget 2018 also proposes $8 million for Transport Canada
to undertake foundational work to advance VIA Rail's proposal for
high frequency rail in the Quebec City-Toronto Corridor. ■

Le CN a annoncé son programme d'immobilisations de
3,2 milliards de dollars canadiens, visant à répondre à la demande
croissante de transport de marchandises.
Pour la troisième année consécutive, le CN prévoit investir
environ 1,6 milliard dans l'entretien afin d'assurer la sécurité
et l'efficacité. Les travaux comprennent le remplacement de
2,1 millions de traverses et de plus de 600 milles de rails, ainsi
que la réfection des ponts et d'autres travaux d'entretien.
On s'attend à ce qu'environ 400 millions de dollars soient
consacrés au matériel, y compris à l'acquisition de nouvelles
locomotives de grande puissance. Un autre montant de
800 millions est destiné à des initiatives visant à accroître
la capacité, comme l'expansion des voies ferrées, les
investissements dans les gares de triage et les terminaux
intermodaux et dans la technologie de l'information pour
améliorer la sécurité, l'efficacité et le service.
Les principaux investissements comprennent :
Soixante locomotives GE, premières livraisons d'une commande
de 200 unités étalée sur trois ans
Prolongements de voies doubles et de voies d'évitement dans
les corridors de la côte Ouest à Chicago
Équipement intermodal et infrastructure à Toronto, Memphis,
Tenn., Joliet, Ill., et autres terminaux
L'entreprise prévoit investir en 2018 quelque 400 millions de
dollars dans le système de commande intégrale des trains (CIT)
le long de 3 500 milles de son réseau américain. Le CN prévoit
investir à ce chapitre, d'ici 2020, un total de 1,4 milliard de
dollars américains.

L'honorable Marc Garneau, ministre des Transports, a annoncé le
19 mars 2018 que le gouvernement du Canada versera des fonds à
VIA Rail pour remplacer sa flotte dans le corridor Québec-Windsor.
Comme celle-ci touche à la fin de son cycle de vie, elle doit être
remplacée pour assurer la sécurité des passagers pendant les
30 prochaines années. Le budget de 2018 propose également
8 millions de dollars pour que Transports Canada entreprenne
des travaux de base en vue de faire progresser l'offre de trains à
grande fréquence de VIA Rail dans le corridor Québec-Toronto. ■
