The Ontario Ministry of Transportation has unveiled plans to rebuild GO Transit rail stations in Mississauga and Milton, Ontario.

At the Meadowvale Station in Mississauga, crews will construct a station building, reconfigure parking lots, and repair and replace damaged catch basins and storm sewer lines. In addition, workers will improve pedestrian connections and bicycle storage, according to a press release issued by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.

At the Milton Station, crews will add 850 parking spaces, bringing the total number to 2,300. Workers also will upgrade platforms and infrastructure to make way for train layovers.

Infrastructure Ontario and GO Transit parent agency Metrolinx have issued a request for qualifications from firms interested in designing, building and financing the overall Milton Corridor project, which includes the redevelopment of both stations.

Other corridor work includes a new station operations facility to accommodate future office, warehouse and parking needs for GO operations.

All the work is part of GO Transit's Regional Express Rail program, which calls for electrifying core segments of the agency's commuter-rail system.
