Promise History

1.11.09 - “Deliver [a GO expansion] to Bowmanville”

In progress

Metrolinx has approved the GO expansion to Bowmanville, but construction has not yet started. The promise therefore remains in progress.

“Metrolinx is holding a series of public information sessions (starting Oct. 14) for residents to talk about concerns around the proposed Durham Scarborough Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project in their community. To allow for more conversation opportunities, Metrolinx has moved back the timelines for the upcoming Transit Project Assessment Process and start of the virtual public engagement. This shift in timing will not impact the overall project assessment process but will provide for additional conversations with community members and residents around what the transit project will bring to the community.”

In progress

“The Metrolinx Board of Directors has endorsed the GO East Rail Extension to Bowmanville.The board met on Thursday and approved the ‘option two’ plan that was recommenced to them last week. […] Residents are now anxiously awaiting a timeline on when construction might start and when the extension could be open for use.”

“Bowmanville Extension — Ontario is extending GO Transit’s Lakeshore East rail corridor to offer new GO train service from Oshawa to Bowmanville. Extending the GO train network by nearly 20 kilometres and building four new stations — two in Oshawa, one in Courtice and one in Bowmanville — will give people in Durham Region more transit options and help drive economic growth and job creation.”
