Bridge Management Program

 Zone Configuration ‭[3]‬

Canadian Pacific is committed to the safety of our operation and the communities we operate through, and the ability of our more than 3,000 bridges to safely support train operations is a critical part of that commitment. From small 10-foot-long spans that carry our tracks across creeks to the 5,300-foot-long Lethbridge Viaduct in Alberta, bridge management at CP is serious business.

CP has invested billions of dollars in our infrastructure in recent years helping make CP the safest Class 1 railroad in North America for the last 10 years in a row. If CP's infrastructure doesn't work, the railway doesn't work. CP continues to invest in its network to enhance safety, improve efficiency, create velocity, and provide the best service possible to customers. In 2015, CP spent approximately $1.5 billion, or 21 percent of its revenue, on capital expenditures, more than any other Class 1 railroad. ​
