One of the long neglected stations on the GO network, it will be nice to see the upgrades happen here. Let's see if they actually complete this by 2025 (deadline for AODA compliance).

One thing i'm curious about is if we'll see full length station shelters or not, earlier plans suggested this wasnt the case (which doesnt make sense to me).

Dark colour is the length of the canopy, lighter, the length of the platform, so pretty fulsome coverage.

South one is a bit shorter.

Disappointing that for this station and Stockyards GO the streetcar connection isn't taken more seriously. One of the greatest features of all the TTC stations is the quality connections to surface transit without needing to brave the elements. It seems the other transit agencies don't get it.

At least the bus access to the station at St Clair will be fairly decent.

Agreed about Long Branch, judging by the plans here, they'll add a crosswalk and some pedestrian infrastructure between the loop and station building.

Hoping these plans include a roughhin for a south side platform for a 4th track. Seems there is space for such but...

Also the lack of a 20-storey building in the parking lot is mind boggling. City was already pushing for lower density in this MTSA and it would be a great opportunity to let Mlx drive the TOD bus if the City doesn't want to...
