The facility includes approximately 500,000 square feet of new buildings. The project also includes tracks and storage for 13 12-car passenger trains; built-in capacity to store an additional nine passenger trains for future use; stations to repair, maintain, fuel, wash and power GO trains; staff and visitor parking; and sustainable design and construction features.
Currently, all rail maintenance activities are performed at GO Transit’s Willowbrook Rail Maintenance Facility, including refueling, daily inspections, train washing, and repairs. A second rail facility is required to service GO Transit’s growing rail fleet. Substantial completion is anticipated by the end of 2017.
