Weston GO / UPX Station: Platform construction starts April 5

Metrolinx is upgrading safety and amenities at Weston GO / UPX Station, as part of the GO Expansion Program.

Starting 7 p.m. Monday, April 5 GO Transit is closing part of the north platform (platform 1) at the station to install tactile yellow safety tiles at the edge of the train platform. This safety feature will remind you how far back to stand.

Closing part of the platform affects how you exit from or board trains.

  • Your train may not stop at its usual platform. Look at the departure boards to make you wait on the right platform for your train.
  • All pedestrian tunnels and elevators remain open during construction.
  • You can still access the UP Express platforms. Most weekday UP Express trips leave 15 minutes later than usually to accommodate the platform construction. Check before you travel to make sure you have the latest schedule information.

The passenger pick-up and drop-off area (or “kiss and ride”) and nine parking spots in the east parking lot are also closed for construction.

The project to install safety tiles at the edge of the north platform “is expected to take two weeks to complete”, meaning that it continues as late as until April 22.

Crews mostly work overnight from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. Nearby residents should expect noise.

After crews finish working on the first half of the north platform, they’ll start on the other half.

Since Monday, June 3, 2019, GO has closed the passenger pick-up and drop-off (or “kiss ‘n’ ride”) and nine parking spots in the east parking lot at the sation. The closures support an ongoing project to build a new track and platform and other amenities.

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