Ontario Railway Network (ORWN) - Crossing

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"


This data set is a point coverage that can be used to identify the location along the rail network where a track crosses another network. It identifies the location and type of crossing that traverses either on, above or below a track. A crossing includes any structure supporting that part of the track or facilitating the crossing. Crossings are often equipped with public warning signs and audio/visual signalling safeguards to control and protect vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
