Lowe Concerned About K-Park Rail Safety

Dangerous and flammable goods commonly make their way through Saint John by rail--and some here and in the outlying communities are worried about what a train derailment or other mishap could mean for public safety.

Common councillor Gerry Lowe tells CHSJ News he's no stranger to issues surrounding rail transport and the community of K Park is in a pretty unenviable position, with long trains regularly passing across its only entryway.

Lowe has been appointed to sit on a committee to work on an alternate way out of K Park in case of emergencies--but says it's likely that committee will also work on other potential rail safety hazards.
