WHAT’S NEXT AT MILLIKEN GO?
WHAT WE'RE DOING
In the next couple of months, you will notice some changes around Milliken GO as we prepare to build your new station.
You will see our contractor on-site doing location surveys and setting up construction trailers. You may also notice work trucks coming in and out of the station during off-peak hours.
Sign up for our email and text alerts, to stay in the know about the construction that will transform your station!
We will do our best to minimize the impact to you. Since construction can be disruptive, we will use the On the GO alerts to flag any changes to the way you get in and around your station.
Sign up with a GO staffer who’ll be at your station on the morning Thursday, August 23. If you sign up by September 30, 2018 you’ll be entered into a draw to win one of two PRESTO cards pre-loaded with $50.
We’re building a new station building and additional amenities to provide more frequent GO train service along the Stouffville line. The station will be able to accommodate the additional daily customers we anticipate in the next 10 years as we gradually increase service to two-way, all-day.
The project includes:
- a new second track, so trains can run north and south, all day
- a new east platform
- a reconstructed west platform
- pedestrian tunnels with elevators
- a platform canopy that will integrate shelters and entrances to tunnels and elevators
- a canopy-covered walkway to Steeles Avenue
We’re also partnering with the City to separate the train tracks from Steeles Avenue, so that trains and cars can move through the area more easily. When we’re finished there will be pedestrian bridges to connect the north and south sides of Steeles with both platforms and elevators.
Through its Regional Express Rail project – better known as GO expansion – Metrolinx is already starting to transform the existing GO rail system from a commuter service to a whole new rapid transit experience for your community. In the next ten years we’re aiming to bring you 15-minute, two-way service between Milliken GO and Union Station.
