The province of Ontario is upgrading GO Transit's Etobicoke North Station, including an extension of the platform to accommodate 12-car trains, the Ministry of Transportation announced yesterday.Additional improvements include installing a raised mini-platform that will connect to on-board train ramps for increased accessibility; adding heated shelters and lighting; improving the bus loop and drop-off area; and creating 10 additional accessible parking spaces, Ontario officials said in a press release.The project is part of the Ontario government's longer-term plan to invest in modern transportation infrastructure. Improving GO Transit's infrastructure will support future plans for two-way, all-day train service across the Toronto and Hamilton areas, they said.Since 2003, Ontario has invested about $9.1 billion (in Canadian dollars) in GO Transit to improve service and expand routes.
