NEW TRAIN SIGNALS
Signals are the stoplights of the train network. The current signaling
system built in the 1920's continues to operate safely, but is difficult
to maintain because most parts are no longer available and cannot meet
the demands of today's commuter world.
A modernized system will reduce signal disruptions, improve reliability
and allow trains to move faster, while maintaining GO's high safety
This project also includes work on the cable network, retaining walls,
maintenance access roads that run parallel to the tracks, and the gas
lines that supply heat for snow blowers on rail switches. Target
completion date is 2019.
