Participation Opportunities: GO Expansion

It’s Happening

Year after year, train by train, bus by bus, Metrolinx has committed to improving transit for people living in in the Greater Golden Horseshoe. Now, that work is taking on a whole new energy. Thanks to a huge investment in infrastructure, Metrolinx is working to quadruple GO Rail service and improve customer experiences.

To get people moving we are actively building and upgrading existing GO Rail stations, adding new track, building and opening new maintenance and storage facilities, expanding and revitalizing bridges around our region and improving pedestrian connections. Find ways to provide feedback and learn more about these exciting investments below.

In February 2020 Metrolinx held 10 open houses across the GO Rail network to share information on the GO Expansion Program Update (also known as On-Corridor Works or OnCorr). These projects include:

  1. New Track and Facilities TPAP;
  2. Scarborough Junction Grade Separations TPAP;
  3. Stouffville Grade Separations TPAP;
  4. Network-Wide Structures Project (Significant Addenda to the Barrie Rail Corridor Expansion Project Environmental Project Report 2017); and
  5. GO Rail Network Electrification (Significant Addenda to the GO Rail Network Electrification Environmental Project Report 2017).

Please check back often for updates on the next round of open houses planned for Spring 2020.  

Kitchener Corridor TPAP

Metrolinx is focused on bringing better GO services, faster, to our customers in the Greater Golden Horseshoe. We’ve heard from our riders that they want more transit options across the network, so we are committed to bringing two-way all-day service to the Kitchener corridor.

Maple GO

This upcoming public consultation will be an opportunity to give us your feedback on our updated plans for a western pedestrian access point to Maple GO Station along Lindenshire Avenue. We made some changes to the design of the pedestrian access point based on your feedback, and we’d like to show you the results.

Davenport Diamond

The Davenport Diamond Grade Separation Project is a critical part of Metrolinx’s GO Expansion program and represents an important transit infrastructure commitment that will significantly improve service on the Barrie GO line. To solve the congestion problem, Metrolinx will build a raised Guideway for GO trains above the CP rail tracks.

New Track & Facilities TPAP Round 1

Assessing new rail layover and train storage facilities at Burlington, Unionville, and Toronto and electrification of the lower Richmond Hill rail corridor.

GO Rail Network Electrification

Assessing additional electrification infrastructure required for new tracks and layover facilities proposed across various portions of the GO rail network that were not previously examined as part of the 2017 Environmental Project Report (EPR).
