Railway crossings in the province are in line for upgrades.
Transport Canada will provide $1.6 million to improve 79 Manitoba railway crossings, the federal government announced Tuesday.
The work includes seven crossings in Elmwood-Transcona, said Conservative MP Lawrence Toet, who represents the federal riding.
"Improvements may include installing flashing lights and bells, installing gate barriers, linking crossing signals to traffic signals, upgrading light bulbs to brighter LED lights, or adding new circuits or timing devices," the press release said.
