Pedestrian Struck by GO Train Halts Service in Mississauga
A police investigation is underway - stopping two trains - potentially affecting thousands of GO train commuters in Mississauga after a pedestrian was struck and killed east of the Appleby GO station on Thursday morning.
"We're working on our service recovery plan," said Metrolinx spokeswoman Anne Marie Aikins.
The incident took place around 8 a.m.
Service west of Oakville is suspended, and GO buses will run between Appleby and Oakville stations.
"These two trains are probably filled to the brim," said Aikins, adding the Lakeshore West line serves roughly 10,000 people in the morning.
It's "impossible" to bus them all at once, she added.
Halton police say Burloak Dr. is closed south of Harvester Rd.
Expect major delays.
UPDATE: Service is now running east of Oakville.
UPDATE: Police have wrapped up and regular train service resumed by 10:06 a.m.
