Construction on the Lakeshore West GO line will impact service in Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and Niagara this weekend.
According to Metrolinx, the entire line will be shut down starting at 11 p.m. tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 12) and will last until end of service on Sunday.
“All Lakeshore West GO train service will be replaced by buses so construction crews can safely work to replace older sections of track,” said a Metrolinx spokesperson.
“These upgrades will improve train speeds, service life, and reliability. By shutting down the corridor, construction crews can safely and efficiently get a lot of work done over the course of the weekend.”
Some of the main work will be on the Canpa switch plant, an important section of track and switches for GO trains on the line. The Canpa switch is particularly vital as it keeps GO trains running smoothly on the busiest line in the network.
Additional track culvert replacements are also taking place near Oakville and Burlington GO.
For customers going to the Toronto Maple Leafs or Argos games on Friday night, GO has added an additional westbound trip making all stops to West Harbour GO that will depart Union Station at 10:30 p.m. and Exhibition GO at 10:37 p.m.
The last westbound train trip will depart Union Station at 10:40 p.m. and Exhibition GO at 10:52 p.m., making all stops to West Harbour GO.
The last two eastbound trips from Exhibition GO to Union Station will depart at 10:50 and 11:20 p.m., then will continue on the Lakeshore East Line, making all stops to Oshawa GO.
Customers will also have the option to take westbound replacement buses from Union Station Bus Terminal, beginning at 9:34 p.m.
There will also be no Niagara train service during this time. Customers travelling between Niagara Falls and Burlington can connect with GO bus route 12 service.
Customers who have purchased a WEGO ticket for this weekend can still board replacement buses with their ticket. If customers wish to be issued a refund, please contact GO Transit’s customer service team to assist.
