Graham Commuter Rail Solutions (GCRS)

The Davenport Diamond refers to the intersection where the Barrie GO corridor meets the CP rail tracks. It’s one of the busiest train intersections in North America. As Metrolinx connects our region with two-way all-day GO service, it means more trains will be passing through and we need a solution to this congestion problem.

The Davenport Diamond Rail Grade Separation Project is a critical part of Metrolinx’s GO Expansion program and represents an important transit infrastructure commitment that will significantly improve service on the Barrie GO line. To solve the congestion problem, Metrolinx will build a raised Guideway for GO trains above the CP rail tracks.

Underneath this raised Guideway, Infrastructure Ontario has worked with the local community to create the Greenway, a new public space that enhances the community experience and that will promote the area as a civic destination.

The Greenway will include:

  • Fully accessible multi-use paths for pedestrians and cyclists
  • A sustainable approach to landscape and plantings
  • Beautiful pollinating gardens
  • Gathering spaces for the community

WT Partnership has been brought on to provide Infrastructure Cost Engineering and Cost Consulting services to Infrastructure Ontario.
