We are pleased to present you with the Third Edition of the Public Works Annual Report. The theme of this year’s edition is Making People a Priority which is our new Departmental Vision! The report is an opportunity to celebrate your valuable contribution to the work that Public Works did in 2015. It also recognizes the challenges ahead.

This course will provide you awareness and knowledge of the federal Grade Crossings Regulations and Grade Crossings Standards. To ensure the work you do complies with the Grade Crossings Regulations and Standards, this course will also clarify the City of Ottawa’s regulatory obligations under the federal Grade Crossings Regulations, help you identify work or activities on public roads that could threaten or interfere with the safety of railway operations at public grade crossings and, know the appropriate City of Ottawa staff and Rail Authority contacts to plan your work or activity to ensure safety at public grade crossings in Ottawa.
