The section between Georgetown and Bramalea seems to be the elephant in the room regarding Kitchener line expansion. What is Metrolinx doing to ensure capacity there for the planned amount of service? Two-way service every 20 minutes, as proposed in the recent BCA, is impossible on the current infrastructure.

This study is a very welcome sign that Metrolinx and the Province are moving forward with the all-day/two-way GO service between Kitchener and Union Station in Toronto. While I understand this project is primarily about the electrification of the Guelph subdivision on the Kitchener line and the impact on existing infrastructure, concurrent consideration must also be given to new bridges and/or rail overpasses. The Lancaster St. rail crossing in Kitchener is perhaps the most obvious example, but not the only one, for a grade separation structure. This is the time to get it done right the first time and not have to revisit the project at later date.
