GO official announcement of service to Guelph

From today's Mercury: "NOTICE OF STUDY COMMENCEMENT: RAIL SERVICE EXPANSION FROM GEORGETOWN TO KITCHENER.

"THE STUDY: GO Transit, the Province of Ontario's interregional public transit service for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton areas, is undertaking a Preliminary Design Study and Class Environmental Assessment to expand rail services from Georgetown to Kitchener. The Study will review potential sites for the construction of new rail stations and layover facilities, and will also identify potential improvements to the existing rail line between Georgetown and Kitchener."

Well, needless to say I have already contacted the organisers of the study, RJ Burnside & Associates, and GO Transit, to offer any support I can and to get on their mailing list. With the decision coming down from Guelph City Council next Tuesday on what to do with the Lafarge property, the timing could not be much better for this announcement. I was sure to include a copy of my presentation on the topic to the people doing the Environmental Assessment.

Thoughts on meeting Elizabeth May | guelph transit | Letter to Guelph City Council re: Lafarge property


Stephen C. Host (gokw.org) writes at Wed May 28 22:54:04 EDT 2008...

The news of this EA is very welcome, as it is the first official written news of the Waterloo Region and Guelph GO expansion directly from GO Transit. It now means we all have a lot of work to do. Station locations need to be put into Municipal planning documents.. transit integration, effects on area roads, highways, etc would be a welcome study. The list goes on.

In similar vain, I can't agree more on the very short window of time for Lafarge and possible inclusion in the GO Train studies (Municipal and in the Class EA).
