Metrolinx public meetings, March 25, 26
on expanding Lakeshore East corridor



To support Metrolinx’ long-term plans to introduce regional express rail services — frequent, all-day, two-way service along GO Transit lines — it intends to improve the Lakeshore East rail corridor.

It needs to improve the corridor between Guildwood and Pickering GO Stations. That section of the line only has two tracks between Galloway Road in Scarborough and Frenchman’s Bay in Pickering (“Durham Junction”). This bottleneck currently challenges GO to provide a more reliable and flexible service along the line.

Metrolinx is proposing to add a third track in this section of the corridor, and is conducting an environmental assessment under a streamlined process — the “transit project assessment” process — to evaluate expanding and improving the corridor between Scarborough Golf Club Road in the City of Toronto and Pickering GO Station in the Region of Durham.

You can participate in this process by attending one of two public meetings. The team studying the proposal will be available during the events to answer your questions and receive your comments.
