Our Commitment to COMMUNITY

Southern Railway of British Columbia (SRY) respects and supports the communities we serve.
These are some of our initiatives:


SRY is working with several municipalities towards signalized crossings for improved public safety, and in some cases, to achieve whistle cessation. These include the City of New Westminster, City of Surrey and City of Abbotsford. In New Westminster, SRY is working with the City of New Westminster to upgrade a total of 7 grade crossings to implement whistle cessation. These include the crossings at 20th Street, Quayside Drive, Pedestrian crossing at Port Royal, and 3 crossings along Ewen Avenue in Queensborough and Salter Avenue. SRY is committed to responding efficiently to issues such as train whistling, blocked crossings, trespassing, and any other concerns along our rail corridor. In New Westminster, SRY monitors and follows-up on the Railway Complaints Phone Line (604-527-6360) on behalf of all of the railroads that operate in the surrounding community: SRY, CPR, BNSF, and CN.

SRY proudly supports the following community organizations
