After talking about it for years, the Government of Ontario has confirmed that it intends to extend GO Transit’s 09 Lakeshore East line to Bowmanville in east Durham Region by 2023 or 2024.

According to a government news release, “Extending the GO train network by nearly 20 kilometres and building four new stations will give people in Durham more transit options and help drive economic growth and job creation.”

Premier Kathleen Wynne was in Bowmanville today, Monday, June 20, to announce the news. Through Metrolinx, Ontario is working with CP Rail on planning the service and improving railway infrastructure for the extension, most of which will use CP’s rail corridor north of Highway 401.

GO will build four new stations in the city of Oshawa and the municipality of Clarington at:

  • Thornton Road in Oshawa;
  • Ritson Road in Oshawa,
  • Courtice Road in Courtice (Clarington); and
  • Martin Road in Bowmanville (Clarington).

(Some early plans for the longer line also included another future station near Grandview Drive in Oshawa.)
