Oriole GO Station

 

The Project

This summer we’ll be making changes to your station, so that you can continue to take the GO Train while the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) starts a long-term project to rehabilitate Highway 401.

MTO will be relocating the Leslie St. East southbound off-ramp further south, so access to the station building and the south section of the GO platform will be restricted to those crossing the pedestrian bridge over the tracks.

This means you will need to:

  • Board and exit your train at one of the five cars north of the accessible platform starting September 6th
  • Use the ticket trailer and temporary washrooms that will be just north of where the station building is once the station building closes in the fall

Other upcoming changes include:

  • The current pedestrian bridge over the tracks will be relocated further south to ensure connection between the community to the west and station remains the same. MTO will be completing this phase of the project.
  • Access to the platform south of the current accessible platform will be permanently closed in the future
  • A platform extension to Esther Shiner Blvd. will be built to accommodate a 10-car train

When the platform extension is complete in early 2018, all train doors will be able to re-open at your station. We’ll be sure to keep you in the know on the construction progress.

We know that construction is inconvenient and we appreciate your patience as we work with MTO to improve transportation in your area.
