The Georgetown South (GTS) Project will provide infrastructure improvements to meet existing GO Transit ridership demand and future growth in Ontario, Canada:

  • This five year project is one of the key elements of The Big Move
    • The Big Move is Metrolinx’s plan to transform transportation in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA)

  • Through track sharing, it also allows for the new Union Pearson Express (formerly known as the Air Rail Link) between Toronto’s Union Station and Lester B. Pearson International Airport
    • This includes a 3.3 kilometre rail spur to the airport

    • The new Air Rail Link will only stop at the Bloor and Weston GO stations
  • The project extends from Bathurst Street in the City of Toronto to Highway 427 in the Region of Peel

The following road closures will take place in Toronto because Metrolinx contractors will be installing girders for rail bridges at:

  • Martin Grove Road
    • will be closed in both directions from Bethridge Road to Vulcan Street from Friday, April 5 at 8 p.m. to Monday, April 8 at 5 a.m.
  • Kipling Avenue
    • will be closed in both directions from Friday, April 19 at 8 p.m. to Monday, April 22 at 5 a.m.
