Stop interference from the railway noise
- Nelson Co op Board of Directors and Property Manager
Due to a sound assessment done 17 years ago, many of the units in our co-op do not have central air conditioning.
Residents of these units are able to hear the increased noise of the trains at night and during the day, especially with the windows open.
The sound of the trains, particularly at night, has been greatly increased with the construction of a third railroad track beside the existing lines and is expected to increase more so as trains begin to run regularly on these lines.
By adding a new third track to the main rail line, the Government of Ontario expects to increase rush hour service along these lines to Hamilton so they won't conflict with the freight train traffic, therefore freeing up all three lines to be used at the same time and thus increasing freight, VIA rail and Go Transit traffic in our community.
We, the undersigned, petition the Board of Directors to reconsider the decision to put air conditioners in only some units and to now ensure that all units have central air conditioning so that all members of this community can enjoy their homes without interference from the railway noise.
