The east side of Platform 4 is now available

Construction on the east side of Platform 4 (south platform) is almost complete and the previously closed portion has reopened.

The elevator on the east side of Platform 4 is back in-service.

Our construction crews are almost finished widening Platform 4, and they have installed new asphalt, upgraded speakers and lighting, as well as completed important underground work for safety systems. You will see some work on Platform 4 for the remaining finishing touches, as well as a fence separating the platform from our construction area.

Please be careful around construction until work is complete in approximately one month.

New amenities at your station now open!

Construction to transform your station is almost complete. We’ve opened new amenities that will increase parking options and improve safety.

Here’s what you need know:

  • New north side parking lots are open. You can access them from the Bramalea Road entrance. The Steeles Avenue entrance remains closed for construction.
  • You now have one more way to enter and exit the parking garage. The west entrance to the parking garage is open.
  • The new passenger pick-up and drop-off area near the station building is open.
  • The west access building and the west pedestrian tunnel, connecting to train platforms, are open.

The north side of the station has been redesigned to enhance safety and improve traffic flow at the station.

What's Next

The redesigned Steeles Avenue entrance is expected to open in the coming weeks. Once construction is complete, it will enhance safety and improve traffic flow at the station.

We're Making Progress

  • For more than four years, crews have been busy on improvements, including a new parking garage, enhanced accessibility and safety features to create a better customer experience – with more connections.
  • Major construction on the new GO station building, featuring a new tunnel connection and a new parking garage is complete and the new amenities are open for you to use. 
  • The parking garage is one of the biggest on the entire Metrolinx network, with the capacity to accommodate 2,059 vehicles.
    • We’ve added more than 100 security cameras for your safety.
      A car-counting system lets you know how many parking spaces are available at each of the six parking levels.
    • LED lights identify which parking spaces are available to use (green), which spaces are not available to use (red), and which spaces are designated for accessibility use (blue).
    • At night motion detection lights up the parking garage to save energy. 
  • We’ve finished important upgrades on the south platform and island (north) platform. We have also completed minor repairs to the pavement on both platforms. Both platforms now have a snow-melt system that helps keep the platforms clear of snow and ice, overhead canopies, shelters to protect you from the weather, and tactile yellow safety tiles to remind you how far back to stand. Both platforms can now also accommodate 12-car trains.

How You Will Benefit

This transformation will make it easier to access your station and bring you more service. Here’s what we have planned:

  • A new station building linked to a parking garage, adding 2,059 spaces
  • A new passenger pick-up and drop-off area (Kiss & Ride)
  • Improved bus platforms for GO Transit and Brampton Transit, with a dedicated Züm bus loop
  • Covered bike parking
  • New retail space
  • Improved access to Bramalea Road
  • New accessible pedestrian tunnel at the west end of the station and a new accessible pedestrian tunnel linked to the new station building   
  • Enhanced safety features including new emergency call systems and upgraded lighting
  • Platform improvements with a snow-melt system that will clear the platform of snow and ice, canopies to protect you from weather. The platforms will also be expanded to accommodate 12-car trains.
