Pickering pedestrian bridge to link GO Station, Town Centre



Tomorrow, Wednesday, December 1, GO Transit contractors start work on a project to build an enclosed pedestrian bridge at Pickering GO Station. The bridge will cross Highway 401 to the base of a new office tower in the City of Pickering’s “downtown precinct”, beside the Pickering Town Centre mall.

GO expects the first phase of the project to continue for about six weeks, starting in the bus loop area, where GO is already working to replace the station building.

Eventually, work will affect the station platform area and then proceed across the highway to the parking lot at the Town Centre.

The project to replace the station building has already affected service for all Durham Region Transit buses operating through the station, but, generally, the work on the bridge should not severely affect passenger services at the station. GO will cordon off the work areas to reduce impact on passengers.

On September 9, 2009, the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario and GO announced the $10 million project through the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Stimulus Fund. The federal and provincial governments committed $5 million each.

GO has agreed to build a $20 million parking structure at the base of the office tower. This will result in 500 new parking spaces for passengers - increasing the number of spaces at Pickering GO Station by 25 percent.

GO will own, operate and maintain the pedestrian bridge and parking facility.
