Town Council Presentation - June 20, 2017

Metrolinx is working to create more connections to the entire GO Network with faster, more frequent local service on the Barrie GO line.  The planned work will bring all day, evening and weekend service to Bradford West Gwillimbury residents. To make this happen, we’re adding a second track between the Union and Aurora GO Stations, as well as a passing track north of Aurora GO Station, to facilitate increased service along the entire line.  We are also planning construction of a new layover facility in Bradford so trains can be stored overnight to begin service bright and early in the morning, in addition to building a new station in Innisfil.  Construction of the temporary layover is currently ongoing and should be complete by the end of this year, and we’re conducting an environmental assessment for the permanent layover site. Over time we’ll be introducing electrification infrastructure to enable new trains that will cut journey times by up to 20 per cent.
