Excessive speed to blame for train derailment investigators say they’re not surprised by what happened in the town of Lac-Megantic, north of Mont더킹카지노real.

“As soon as there’s something like that the speed limit is lowered and it’s a lot more reasonable for people to stop and look at this train and look at the train,” said Jean-Michel Aéret, who owns a train depot that serves the town of about 20,000 people, and who told CTV News Channel he’s heard from several concerned residents.

At a news conference in Quebec City, police and fire officials said the two cars that derailed in Lac-Megantic had been traveling faster than 80 kilometres/hour.더킹카지노

In a statement the provincial department of infrastructure and mining cited a 2009 study released by an environmental consulting firm that concluded there were only about 4,600 kilometres between cities and the industrial centre.

“The study concludes that a 20 km/h limit is sufficient for most road traffic in a given year and is an adequate speed limit for trains in a city with a population of 4 million people,” said the department.
