Contracted Value/Payment Mechanism:


Eglinton GO Station, located near the intersection of Eglinton Avenue East and McCowan Road, was built in 1978 and received its most recent rehabilitation in 2000. A project has been initiated to upgrade the station to provide full passenger accessibility to the station building, the side platforms, north and south parking lots, and the pick-up, drop-off (PUDO) area.

Accessibility upgrades at Eglinton GO Station are the second phase of a two-phase project and will prepare the station to support increased two-way, all-day service in years to come.

Work to upgrade Eglinton GO Station and make it fully accessible will include:

  • Four new elevators and stairwells on the existing two side platforms
  • Connection of elevators and stairwells to the two previously installed pedestrian tunnels under the rail tracks
  • Mechanical and electrical rooms for new services in the tunnels
  • Mini-platforms to enable boarding and exiting accessibility coaches; accessible route canopies (from elevators to mini-platforms)
  • Digital signage and tactile edge tiles on the platforms
  • Heat traced ramps to the north platform on the west side and to the east tunnel on the east side
  • North vestibule to the east tunnel with seating, automated fare purchase and digital signage
  • Rehabilitation of the PUDO area
  • Required shelter relocations, platform widening, and repairs as required to implement above scope elements on the platforms
