BURLINGTON, ON

 

Lakeshore West rail service will be modified for short periods of time on some weekends until Sunday, June 9 to allow for necessary track work along the corridor.

May 25 and 26, 2024.

June 1 and 2, 2024.

June 8 and 9, 2024.

During these weekends, Lakeshore West trains will operate every 15 minutes between Union Station to Oakville GO, and then hourly between Oakville to West Harbour GO stations.

Services to Niagara Falls GO remain unaffected.

Why is this work being done?

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.
