KAP members who rely on shortline railways have expressed concern over the lack of government funding made available for this rail class. Shortlines are a critical part of the supply chain and KAP advocates that both the provincial and federal government make funds available for shortline infrastructure investments. Adequate funding ensures that shortline rail companies have the opportunity to expand market share while at the same time creating a safe and efficient rail network.
KAP will continue to advocate for the valuable role shortline railways play in the province. KAP encourages further dialogue between industry and government to ensure the sustainable growth of shortline railways that will be beneficial and advantageous for all stakeholders.
