Metrolinx public meeting for Kitchener Corridor Expansion Program, November 20

Metrolinx is transforming the existing GO system to deliver a whole new rapid transit experience, making connections like never before. The Kitchener GO expansion will transform the line into a true frequent rapid transit experience. There will be more trips at every point along the line – from Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, Halton Hills, Brampton, Mississauga and Toronto. Two-way, all-day service to Kitchener requires a host of new infrastructure on the corridor.

Starting in November 2019, Metrolinx will be hosting a number of public meetings to share information and seek your feedback on the Guelph Subdivision Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP).

About the Guelph Subdivision Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP)

Metrolinx is currently carrying out the Guelph Subdivision TPAP (the Project) under Ontario Regulation 231/08 – Transit Projects and Metrolinx Undertakings. The scope of this environmental assessment study includes electrification of the rail corridor starting from west of Georgetown to Kitchener (see key map).

The proposed electrification infrastructure includes power supply and power distribution components as well as various ancillary works: one (1) Tap location, three (3) Traction Power Facilities (i.e. Paralleling Station, Switching Station and Traction Power Substation), overhead contact system, aerial/underground feeders, grounding and bonding, and bridge modifications.
