*NOTICE OF PUBLIC INFORMATION CENTRE #1 STOUFFVILLE RAILWAY CORRIDOR EXPANSION*
Metrolinx, an agency of the Province of Ontario, is helping transform the way the region moves by
championing and delivering mobility solutions for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) through its regional transportation plan, The Big Move. Our GO Transit division continues to expand and improve its services to provide more choices for travel across the GTHA, meet increasing customer demand and attract more transit users in the future.
GO Transit is undertaking a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) and Preliminary Design for the
Stouffville railway corridor from just south of Kennedy GO Station in Toronto to Unionville GO Station in
Markham. The study will identify what infrastructure improvements are needed along the corridor to
improve the quality of service offered to customers and provide new transit options in the eastern GTHA.
The project will be carried out as a Group “B” undertaking as outlined in the GO Transit - Class
Environmental Assessment (as amended in August 2005). An Environmental Study Report (ESR)
documenting the preliminary design work, the results of the EA process, anticipated environmental effects of the project and commitments to mitigation measures will be filed for public and agency review at the completion of the study. We will make these documents available to the public at that time.
Your participation is an important part of the process and we welcome your input. You are invited to
attend any one of the Public Information Centres listed below. GO Transit staff and the study
consultants will be on hand to answer questions and record your comments.
