Construction on a massive new rest house for CPKC is well underway.

The work began last month on the approximately 20,000-square-foot facility located on the 400 block of North Railway Street East.

According to the City of Swift Current's monthly CAO report for April, the building will be two storeys. It will include sleeping suites, dining, recreation areas, and offices for CPKC employees.

The building is expected to be completed by the end of 2024 "in support of our rail operations," a CPKC spokesperson said.
