GO Transit to add third track on Lakeshore West corridor, improve two stations

Toronto’s GO Transit continues to expand its Lakeshore West corridor.

The agency is in the midst of a $72 million project to add a third track between Burlington and Bayview Junction. Scheduled to be complete in September 2007, the track will enable GO Transit to operate more trains.

In addition, GO Transit is improving its Aldershot and Burlington stations along the Lakeshore West corridor. The agency will construct pedestrian tunnels and new elevators, and expand platforms to accommodate 12-car trains.

The projects are part of GO Transit’s billion-dollar expansion plan, which is being funded by local municipalities, and provincial and federal governments through the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund.
