About the Proposed Logistics Facility

Canadian National Rail (CN Rail) has plans to develop 400 acres in the south end of Milton for use as an Intermodal logistics facility.  They have faced opposition from local government, and citizens groups.  Under the railway act CN can build 100 yards to either side of the rail line, without planning permission.  It’s in the Tremaine Road, and Britannia Rd area.  Boyne neighbourhood is located on the north side of Britannia.   This area is expected experience the bulk of Milton’s residential growth.

Two groups lead citizens’ opposition: Milton Residents Affected by Intermodal Lines (Milton RAIL) and Milton Says No.  To learn more about the project visit the Town of Milton’s website.
