Residents invited to learn about Metrolinx plan to electrify rail corridor in Scarborough

News May 24, 2016 Scarborough Mirror

East Scarborough residents can find out next week how plans to electrify and improve service on the Lakeshore East Rail Corridor may affect their neighbourhoods.

As part of electrifying the corridor and speeding up train service, Ontario’s Metrolinx agency plans to add a third track between Guildwood and Pickering GO stations, build three grade separations, and widen or replace bridges and culverts along the way.

Public meetings explaining these projects, which are still being studied, will be at Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate on Lawrence Avenue on Wednesday, May 25 and at the East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club on Galloway Road on Thursday, May 26.

Both meetings are from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with a presentation at 7 p.m.

Grade separations are proposed where the line crosses Morningside Avenue, Scarborough Golf Club Road, and Galloway.

Scarborough East Councillor Paul Ainslie also suggested residents could ask about plans to expand the Guildwood GO station.
