Source: Guelph Tribune, Jan 27 edition.  Please say it ain’t so? Let’s hope Kitchener-Waterloo politicians are dealing with Go Transit properly and are receptive to the idea of GO service. As well, GO Transit will do their part to study the potential market in Kitchener. It is well known in local Railroading circles the biggest problem to ‘upgrades’ west to Kitchener are the required repairs to the Breslau Grand River bridge, which has a limiting 10 MPH speed limit for all trains. To upgrade this bridge for faster traffic, millions of dollars would need to be spent.

What about the Federal Governments new budget for infrastructure funding? Surely this would qualify…

It likely would qualify if the municipal and provincial governments could share the costs. Yay for strings-attached funding!

According to the EA, Kitchener is expected to have many more passengers riding daily than Guelph. I attended the open house tonight but was disappointed that a site plan for the proposed and preferred King Street station was not posted.
