Train on the Lakeshore West Line

Lakeshore West Line GO Expansion

Burloak Drive Grade Separation

Metrolinx’s GO Expansion program is delivering more GO service across the network, including trains every 15 minutes or better on the Lakeshore West line.

To support the increase in GO service, Metrolinx is working with the City of Burlington and the Town of Oakville to build the Burloak Drive grade separation which will improve traffic flow without having to wait for trains to pass.

Separating Burloak Drive from the rail tracks will deliver the following benefits:

  • Allow Metrolinx to deliver increased GO service levels on the Lakeshore West line supporting more frequent, two-way, all-day rail service
  • Optimize traffic flow and enhance pedestrian and vehicular safety
  • Widen Burloak Drive to accommodate 4 lanes of vehicular traffic with provisions for a future 6 lane road.
  • Improvements at Superior Court and Prince William Drive, as well as minor improvements at Harvester and Wyecroft Roads.
  • Dedicated multi use pathways along the boulevard and on street bicycle lanes.

Early works for the project are currently underway. Check out the construction notices page for more information.
