Metrolinx and province will make GO announcement in Stoney Creek
The event will happen at the future site of the Centennial Parkway GO station
Metrolinx and two Liberals MPPs will make a "significant" announcement about GO transit in Hamilton and Niagara Thursday.
St. Catharines MPP Jim Bradley and Ted McMeekin, MPP for Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale, will hold the event at the site of the future Confederation GO station in Stoney Creek.
The Confederation GO station, due to open in 2019, will be Hamilton's most eastern station for GO trains.
Metrolinx plans to expand GO trains to St. Catharines and Niagara by 2023, and is currently designing a Casablanca GO station in Grimsby.
Construction is already underway for the Stoney Creek station at 397 Centennial Pkwy. N. That includes excavating the property, building sewer connections and culvert extensions, and clearing the rail corridor.
Late last year, Metrolinx held a series of public meetings in Hamilton and Niagara asking people what expansion to Niagara should look like.
