Your documents indicate that there is a noise impact study being conducted as the former 2009 study did not consider the Heritage Road layover. When is the expected completion date of this study and how will its results impact this project? Living southeast of this area, we currently can hear the trains & want to know how noise will be mitigated.

The study area of the Noise and Vibration Baseline Conditions and Impact Assessment Report will include the project footprint plus an additional 500m of the surrounding area. The study will assess noise and vibration impacts, over and above baseline conditions, of the construction and operations of the Heritage Road Layover. The report is expected to be completed in spring 2022 and is planned to be available for public review in summer 2022. If the assessment indicates that mitigation for noise and vibration is warranted, mitigation measures will be considered and assessed for feasibility. These measures will be incorporated into the design of the layover if they are considered feasible.
