Discussions to improve safety at an Ingersoll rail crossing appear to be heading on the right track.

In a release, Mayor Ted Comiskey says “he's heard from numerous residents that the Thames Street crossing is a concern of theirs.....and it's a concern of mine.”

He says the crossing is so rough that he recently witnessed an ambulance during an emergency situation, having to stop and crawl across the tracks.

Comiskey reached out to C-N staff at the recent Rural Ontario Municipal Association conference in Toronto and Ontario lead of Community Affairs, Drew Redden, agreed to meet with him.

Redden says the approach and crossing definitely need work and they will discuss which options will make for a smoother crossing, whether it's wood, rubber, concrete or other products.
