Second (and not last!) GO Layover facility being tendered.. Shirley Ave

By shost at 7:44 pm on Friday, September 5, 2014

So for the Kitchener-ites, Shirley ave – the ‘back road’ that acts as an alternate commuter route for those going east/west to/from Guelph and want to avoid Victoria.. there sits a little piece of property formerly known as Clarke Transport.

It seems Metrolinx bought this property and plans to build the second layover facility here. Why you ask? Good question – what’s wrong with building the real deal down by Baden that was planned and approved in the EA back in 2009? Will shirley Ave have enough room for the planned expansions? Will Shirley be itself replaced in 6 more years if say, all-day service comes to pass?

Either way – expect a multi-million dollar layover facility to be built at Shirley – clearly it’s already been designed..

I’m all for increased service – but taxpayer money spent on another intermediate station only 3 years since the last was built? Details please..
