Construction and track maintenance this weekend will mean reduced service for Lakeshore East GO Transit users as service is reduced to hourly.

There also will be no service at all November 12 and 13 on the Stouffville line, with riders already without GO Bus service due to the transit union strike.

This coming weekend’s work will see track work at Kennedy GO Station, as well as upgrades and repairs to a number of crossings along the line. Crews will also upgrade signals at Scarborough GO Station.

Expect the same service reduction two weeks from now on the weekend of November 26 and 27 when crews will be doing track maintenance related to the Ontario Line subway project.

The work is happening in an area where the Ontario Line will run adjacent to the Lakeshore East and Stouffville Line GO tracks, impacting service on both lines on those two days.

Once completed, the Ontario Line will add 15.6 km to Toronto’s subway network. Lakeshore East and Stouffville Line GO passengers will have an easy transfer point in the future at a new East Harbour Station, providing a shorter trip to and from the Financial District.
