Hurontario LRT: Less parking at Port Credit GO Station, starting March 22

Note that GO and Metrolinx are planning to shut down power at the station from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. *today, Monday, March 22. As a result, all elevators are out of service. If you have accessibility needs, use Clarkson GO station.*

Metrolinx and its contractors continue construction of the Hurontario light rail transit line in Mississauga and Brampton.

Metrolinx intends to build a new underpass on the south side of GO Transit’s Lakeshore West rail corridor. Building the underpass will allow the LRT vehicles to travel into the future below-ground Port Credit LRT Station.

Starting Monday, March 22, the LRT work zone blocks 75 more parking spaces in the north lot of Port Credit GO Station. Construction activity takes place in the northwest corner of the north parking lot. Access to the tunnels, bike shelter and pedestrian pathways remain the same as previously. GO Transit says, “There is still parking available in the north, south and west parking lots.”

Since Monday, February 8, GO made major changes to the station parking due to the LRT construction.

North lot:
  • GO closed some of the parking spaces in the south half of the north parking lot.
  • It relocated reserved parking spaces in the north lot.
  • A pedestrian path is available so you can walk to and from the tunnels connecting to the train platforms.
  • The elevator to the north platform remains available. The elevator to the south platform is currently under construction. An accessibility ramp is available for you to use to reach the south platform. Look for signs to help guide you to and from your platform.
  • Expect a series of closures in the north lot during construction “until the end of 2022”, meaning as late as December 31, 2022.

South lot:
  • GO closed part of the south lot on Hurontario Street. It closed part of the east side and the northern half of the parking lot.
  • It also closed the stairs from Hurontario Street into the south parking lot during construction.
  • It relocated some of the reserved parking spaces in the south lot.
  • Construction does not impact sidewalks or entrances for passengers in the south parking lot.

Also, starting “this month (Feb.)” — perhaps as early as Monday February 8 — crews are protecting and removing trees and shrubs.

Crews are installing plywood fencing around trees in the area to protect them from construction debris. They intend to protect as many trees as possible. However, they will remove trees that they can’t protect. But local bylaws require Metrolinx to replace any trees as a part of the final landscaping of the area.

Construction in the Port Credit GO Station parking lots continues “until 2023”, meaning as late as December 31, 2023.

Metrolinx is also enhancing Port Credit GO Station, as part of the GO Expansion Program.

Since Monday, January 11, GO has closed the south platform elevator, while crews upgrade the device.

  • Use the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the passenger pick-up and drop-off areas (or “Kiss and Ride) to get to the south platform.
  • After crews finish upgrading the south platform elevator, they start upgrading the island platform elevator.

Since Thursday, December 2, GO has temporarily removed the PRESTO fare-payment device on the west side of the stairs (between the bus loop and the south platform) until further notice.

It’s also temporarily removed the digital screen displaying trip information and the PRESTO fare-payment device on the east side of the stairs (also between the bus loop and the south platform). Crews will put the machines in place when they finish building the west ramp “in spring 2021”, meaning the devices are out of service as late as until June 30.

PRESTO fare-payment devices are available in the station building and on the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the Kiss and Ride. Digital screens are available on the train platforms and in the GO station building.

Since Tuesday, October 27, crews have been installing tactile yellow safety tiles on the north side of the island platform overnight nightly. The tiles remind passengers how far back to safely stand from the edge of the platform. This will not affect how you board or exit from trains at Port Credit.

When crews have completed the north side of the island platform, they’ll start working on the south side. GO says, “Please be careful around construction equipment until work is complete on the island platform”. Construction continues until “winter 2021”, meaning as late as until March 31.

Since Monday, September 14, 2020, GO has been building a new accessible ramp connecting the bus terminal to the south train platform. This temporarily affects how you access buses at the station. The work zone blocks platform 8 in the terminal. MiWay is relocating the stop for northbound buses along the 8 Cawthra route and eastbound buses along the 23 Lakeshore route to platform 5.

Since Tuesday, August 4, 2020, GO has closed 15 parking spaces in the southwest lot near Stavebank Road North, so crews can store construction material for ongoing construction at Port Credit GO.

Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Lakeshore West line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).
