Fenoco has filed a petition with the court to lift the restrictions and says it has undertaken steps to address the grievances of rural residents whose complaints about noise was behind the overnight ban. The government will receive about $150 million less annually from taxes and royalties if the railway restriction is upheld, Mines and Energy Minister Tomas Gonzalez said. “We’re convinced that it’s possible to maintain respect for the stated noise levels without sacrificing everything at stake in terms of local employment and funds for social investment in the region,” he said.
