During the project, GO will lower and cover the tracks through Weston. It will relocate Weston GO station from its current site north of Lawrence Avenue West to a new site south of Lawrence.

Metrolinx and GO are working with several partners, including the City of Toronto and the Toronto Catholic District School Board to figure out how to the covered section of the Weston Tunnel, to work on a station area master plan that incorporates the station design with other planned building opportunities and planning exercise for Weston that City planning staff will lead.

After the project is complete, through traffic will to cross the tracks over bridges at King and Church Street. John Street close to vehicles, although a new pedestrian bridge will still allow some access between the west and east ends of the street.
