GO Transit EA study for Georgetown to Kitchener expansion complete
I just received the following in the mail. It's not even on GO Transit's website yet. Looks like good news all round. Short version: "Details of the preferred alternatives include these stations: Acton - Hide House; Guelph - Downtown VIA; Breslau - Greenhouse Road and Kitchener - Downtown VIA, and a layover facility at Nafziger Road, Baden."
The EA study report can be viewed in person at the following locations from July 23rd to September 7th:
- City of Brampton - Clerk's Office - 2 Wellington Street West, Brampton
- Town of Halton Hills - Clerk's Office - 1 Halton Hills Drive, Georgetown
- Halton Hills Public Library - Acton Branch - 17 River Street, Acton
- Guelph City Hall - Clerk's Office - 1 Carden Street, Guelph
- Guelph Public Library - Main Branch - 100 Norfolk Street, Guelph
- Region of Waterloo Library - Bloomingdale Branch - 860 Sawmill Road, Bloomingdale
- Kitchener Public Library - Main Branch - 85 Queen Street North, Kitchener
- Kitchener City Hall - Clerk's Office - 200 King Street West, Kitchener
- Region of Waterloo Library - New Hamburg Branch - 145 Huron Street, New Hamburg
- Region of Waterloo Library - Baden Branch - 115 Snyder's Road East, Baden
- Township of Wilmot - Clerk's Office - 60 Snyder's Road West, Baden
- Township of Woolwich - Clerk's Office - 24 Church Street West, Elmira
I'm disappointed that, as I predicted, the nearest park-and-ride for Guelph will be in Breslau rather than at Lafarge, something we will pay dearly for down the road, but that this study recommends going right through to Kitchener downtown from the outset is very good news for transit in this region indeed.
