Province vows airport rail link by 2015

Spur line must be built to connect to Georgetown line

By David Rider

Ontario Transportation Minister Kathleen Wynne is vowing to have the much-delayed train link between Pearson International Airport and downtown Toronto running in time for the 2015 Pan Am Games.

Wynne made the pledge after Toronto Mayor David Miller told a Pan Am panel Friday he had no faith the province and Ottawa would manage to build “a tiny 1.3-kilometre spur” track connecting the Georgetown GO line and Pearson in time for the event.

Wynne later told the Star the line as it exists wouldn’t be able to handle airport-downtown traffic, but a major upgrade, cost-shared by the province and Ottawa, will see trains rolling by July 2015.

“We’re working very hard and we’re committed to delivering this for the 2015 Pan Am Games,” Wynne said.
