Lakeshore East Line GO Expansion
- Bowmanville Extension TPAP
Bowmanville Extension TPAP
In 2011, Metrolinx completed an Environmental Project Report (EPR) to assess the proposed expansion of GO transit infrastructure from Oshawa to Bowmanville. The EPR for the Oshawa to Bowmanville Rail Service Expansion and Whitby Rail Maintenance Facility, referred to as the ‘Project’, considered the potential environmental impacts of the Project and recommended appropriate mitigation measures.
Following the completion of the 2011 EPR, Metrolinx advanced the design of the Project. Based on Project refinements and revisions to the design approach since the completion of the 2011 EPR, the alignment and infrastructure requirements for the project have changed and Metrolinx initiated an EPR Addendum to assess the effects of these changes in scope.
There will be a public information centre as part of the Addendum held in early 2023.
Improvements are underway along the Lakeshore West Line to support more frequent, faster service.
We're transforming GO Transit to bring more frequent two-way, all-day service to the Barrie Line.
