The Canadian National Railway Company (CN) has advised Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) of upcoming rehabilitation work on the level crossing at Elliott Road in Port Granby.
The Elliott Road entrance to the Port Granby Long-Term Waste Management Facility will be closed during this time period and all access to the site will be through the south entrance off Lakeshore Road.
While efforts will be made to coordinate or reschedule deliveries during this time, residents can expect to see an increase in traffic on Newtonville and Lakeshore roads, primarily employee and maintenance vehicles as well as some large delivery/transport trucks.
CN has advised the work will take place between May 15 and 20, 2022, however, the dates may change slightly based on CN’s evolving schedule.
For more information about this work, please contact Sandra Weeks, Communications Officer, at 905.885.0291 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. After business hours (8:30 to 4:30), you can reach the CNL management office at the same number.
About the Port Granby Project
As part of the Port Hope Area Initiative, the Port Granby Project involves the relocation of more than 1.3 million tonnes of historic low-level radioactive waste and marginally contaminated soils in a former waste management facility at the south-eastern boundary of the Municipality of Clarington.
The project includes construction of an engineered aboveground mound to isolate the waste from the environment, a dedicated waste water treatment plant, and supporting infrastructure.
The Port Granby Project is regulated through a Waste Nuclear Substance Licence issued to Canadian Nuclear Laboratories by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. Under this licence, strict site safety, security, radiation protection, environmental protection, as well as occupational health and safety protocols are in place to minimize risks to the public, workers and the environment.
