Georgetown south rail corridor:
Overnight snow-clearing, February 23, 24

Overnight tonight, Monday, February 23 until early tomorrow, Tuesday, February 24, Metrolinx crews working on the Georgetown South rail corridor infrastructure project are clearing snow from the rail corridor to facilitate upcoming track-safety inspections. According to Metrolinx, crews can only complete this work, when trains are not operating.

Residents living nearby can expect some noise. Snow-removal machines will move along the tracks between Weston and Bloor GO stations with multiple passes on multiple tracks.

You should also expect intermittent overnight work as crews finish installing the track and testing along the corridor to prepare for launching the Union Pearson Express line this spring.

Metrolinx is upgrading the Georgetown South rail corridor to accommodate the UP Express trains this spring, and, eventually, regional express rail services along GO Transit’s 31 Kitchener line, over the next few years. If the City of Toronto proceeds with Mayor John Tory’s SmartTrack project, local rapid transit trains may also operate along the tracks, possibly as soon as seven years from now.
