A few times in the documents, a possible relocation of Scarborough GO is mentioned. Why is this being considered? The current location seems to be compatible with the planned grade separation (I assume, as there isn't any talk of lowering the current Uxbridge sub track as it crosses St. Clair) and it doesn't look like a more westerly or more easterly location would put the station closer to riders.

A new track will be built at the Scarborough Junction heading north on the Stouffville Rail Corridor (total of two north-south tracks). This new track was assessed and approved as part of the Stouffville Corridor Rail Service Expansion Transit Class EA.  The space between the existing tracks and the Scarborough GO Station building is not enough to accommodate this new track. As such, the GO Station building may be modified or relocated; however, the building will remain within the existing property boundaries of the Scarborough GO Station.

Why are topics open for comment for such a short time, and why are not registered users emailed about new ones? Seems disingenuous to have a site like this, but to do little to announce new opportunities to comment, or little time to do it in.

Will you be building junctions to the spur across the 401 and the Bowmanville station first so GO trains can run while other stations at Thornton, ---- Hill and Courtice are built. This would get the rail line more quickly into service. Will The extension past Oshawa initially have a more limited schedule than the rest of the line?

Thank you for your feedback. Delivery of the program will depend on funding decisions, and required time for design and construction. Timing and staging will be further refined and developed through the preliminary design phase. To stay up to date, please consider signing up to receive our regional newsletter.
