GO Transit begins pedestrian bridge construction

Posted on January 12, 2011

Toronto-based GO Transit has begun construction of a new pedestrian bridge over Highway 401 will provide better access for commuters by connecting the Pickering GO Station south of the highway to the Pickering Town Centre and Toronto's new downtown core, both located on the north side.

Construction on the approximately 820-foot bridge is currently underway. The bridge will be fully enclosed and will link GO parking at the base of an office tower north of Highway 401 to the GO station and platforms on the south side. The north parking is currently under construction and will provide more than 500 structured parking spaces for use by GO Transit commuters.

Through the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund (ISF), the federal and provincial governments are each contributing $5 million toward the eligible cost of this project. GO Transit is providing the remaining $12.5 million of the total project cost.

As part of the Government of Canada's Economic Action Plan, the $4-billion ISF is providing funding to nearly 4,000 infrastructure projects across the country, including this one.
