Metrolinx rail work starts April 30 in Guelph

Track Improvements between Imperial Road and Edinburgh Road

Metrolinx, an agency of the Province of Ontario, is working to transform the way the region moves by building a seamless, convenient, and integrated transit network across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Over the next ten years, Metrolinx is transforming the existing GO rail system to deliver a whole new rapid transit experience to your community. With more frequent train service you’ll have more options to get you where you need to go.

The local project

Metrolinx has begun a multi-year construction program to expand and improve the existing GO Transit service network. As part of this expansion, Metrolinx will be working to upgrade tracks and improve safety between Imperial Road and Edinburgh Road. The first phase of this work: setting up a construction trailer, clearing brush and vegetation and installing fencing, will begin April 30.

What this means for you

We expect this work to have minimal impact to residents and adjacent properties. Work will happen during the day between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Additional notifications to residents will be circulated for impacts of any major work in the future.

We encourage you to sign up to our email distribution list to receive updates by contacting us at laura.durie@metrolinx.com or 416-202-3467, or visit us at metrolinx.com.

Thank you for your patience while we improve transit to get communities moving.
