We're transforming your station!
We will be building a new track on the Kitchener GO line, next to the West Toronto Railpath. Part of this work will include construction of a new entrance to Bloor GO Station, a new community park at Ernest Avenue, and a realignment of the Railpath, on behalf of the City of Toronto.
Bloor GO Construction Map
No access to the station from Randolph Avenue during construction starting November 5
Starting Saturday, November 5, the West Toronto Railpath will be closed between Ernest Avenue and Bloor Street West. This means there will be no access to Bloor GO Station from Randolph Avenue. A detour path along platform 1 will be in place to help you along your way. We need this space for important work to build the new pedestrian tunnel and covered pedestrian pavilion, which will connect Randolph Avenue with the station. Here is what you need to know:
Here’s what you need to know:
- If you arrive at the station from the north side, follow signs to get to the station. You will be redirected to platform 1. Platform 1 will be divided in two sections including one side for Bloor GO Station customers and a second side for West Toronto Railpath users. Access to the station from Ernest Avenue will remain available for you.
- There will be two accessible ramps on either side of platform 1 to help you make your way from the West Toronto Railpath onto platform 1 safely.
- If you arrive at the station from the south side, your access from Dundas Street West will remain the same.
- If you are being picked up or dropped off at the station, please use the passenger pick-up and drop-off area from Dundas Street West. We ask that you do your part to avoid slowing down and stopping other vehicles on roads surrounding the station.
- If you are cycling, please walk your bicycle across the platform for your safety and the safety of those around you.
- This detour is expected to remain in place for approximately one year.
Underground utilities will be relocated at Randolph Avenue, followed by excavation for the tunnel between Bloor Street West and Randolph Avenue.
Later this fall, we will build a wall on the West Toronto Railpath to reduce noise between our train operations and the railpath.
