Guelph transit terminal gets green light and funding & Rail bridge improvements as part of GO service

By shost at 8:15 pm on Sunday, June 7, 2009

Split 1/3 each between Federal, Provincial and Municipal government, in a slew of funding announcements for the City of Guelph is the approval of the $8m transit terminal at the current VIA Station. Guelph Transit busses will move to this location, and integrate with GO Transit, VIA Rail, and Greyhound.

As well, the Guelph/CN Rail viaduct will be rehabilitated with 8.4 million in funding.

These projects are intended to be complete within two years.

“$8,000,000 – The new transit terminal will be home to local and regional transit services, as well as the rail operations of VIA and GEXR Guelph. The design and public consultation for the project is ready to be started in 2009 and construction is anticipated to be completed by March 2011. When completed, the project will contribute to sustainable movement of people and goods.”

“$8,400,000 – The railway bridge on Wyndham Street is almost 100 years old and in poor repair. The City is upgrading Wyndham Street from Carden to Wellington with the complete road, sewer and water reconstruction plus bicycle lanes along with the reconstruction of the bridge. It is also important that the bridge be upgraded before the proposed GO Transit expansion and increase in rail traffic.”
