At least 44 rail crossings will be upgraded throughout Manitoba municipalities in order to meet new federal standards.

These include adding warning lights or bells and gates, improving the grade of a road, and new sightlines when a vehicle encounters a crossing. There are 18 different municipalities with a crossing that needs to be updated, and Winnipeg has about 10 crossings that need to meet these new guidelines.
This process is estimated to be completed within four years and expected to cost around 10 to 12 million dollars at a minimum, although there is expected financial support from the federal government.
