2023 Top100 Projects Rank: 81 Value: $655 million
THE GOVERNMENT OF ONTARIO awarded an early-stage contract Bowmanville
Construction Partners (BCP) to advance infrastructure planning on
the Bowmanville GO Extension.
The early-stage infrastructure planning contract will support the
nearly 20-kilometre extension project, which includes new tracks and
signals, seven new bridges and at-grade crossing upgrades.
“This contract brings us one step closer to extending the Lakeshore
East GO line further into Durham Region, bringing GO train service
to the people of Bowmanville for the first time,” said Premier Doug
Ontario is investing $730 million to extend the Lakeshore East GO
line further into Durham Region, bringing two-way all-day GO train
service to Bowmanville. With nearly 17,000 daily trips and 4.9 million
annual boardings expected by 2041, the Bowmanville Extension will
connect more people to jobs and places while reducing travel times
across the region.
“This exciting milestone brings us closer to creating stronger connections between Durham Region and the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
When complete, this project will reduce commute times between
Bowmanville and Union Station by 15 minutes and provide increased
network connectivity across the Greater Golden Horseshoe,” said Phil
Verster, president and CEO of Metrolinx.
