Metrolinx is moving forward on its plans for a new Acton GO Station.
It recently signed a land-lease agreement with the Town of Halton Hills, which means that contractors can start building the new GO Transit station this month. Construction continues into 2013.
The extra stop along GO’s 31 Kitchener line will help connect Acton with downtown Toronto, but also supports commuters traveling between Acton and the Georgetown and Brampton areas.
Two morning and two evening trains will serve Acton GO Station and GO will provide schedules on line later this year. When the station opens, it will offer 50 parking spaces, but GO expects to add another 60 spaces after service begins.
The new station will include platform lighting, closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV) and a public announcement system, an accessible mini-platform, designated waiting areas and two heated platform shelters.
