Province Extending Richmond Hill GO Line to Highway 404 and Bloomington Road
Richmond Hill, ON – Mar 24, 2017
Ontario is making it easier for commuters and families to get around York Region and the Greater Toronto Area with the construction of a new GO station at Highway 404 and Bloomington Road.
Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca, joined by Dr. Helena Jaczek, MPP for Oak Ridges-Markham, and Chris Ballard, MPP for Newmarket-Aurora, were at the site of the new GO station today to announce that the province has officially started construction on the project.
The new station will extend the Richmond Hill GO rail line north from the current terminus at Gormley GO Station, and will offer commuters living in Aurora and Whitchurch-Stouffville convenient access to GO Transit service.
The station will be fully-accessible and include a 765-space parking structure, charging for electric vehicles, heated shelters, a platform snowmelt system, a kiss & ride area and a covered six-bay bus loop. An additional 253 parking spaces will be available in a surface lot.
Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province’s history. To learn more about what’s happening in your community, go to Ontario.ca/BuildON.
