In one of her final queries in Question Period at Queen's Park, Durham MPP Lindsey Park asked when the GO train is coming to Bowmanville.
Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney answered, saying that the government shares the desire to see the project move ahead as quickly as possible. She said discussions are still underway with CP to finalize a commercial agreement for the use of its tracks for the preferred route. A memorandum of understanding between Metrolinx and the Region of Durham has recently been formalized. Metrolinx also recently completed geotechnical work in the CP-owned corridor, a necessary preliminary step before any construction.
