We’re approaching a milestone on the Cooksville GO Station Redevelopment Project! In a few weeks, crews will be preparing to lift the new pedestrian bridge that will connect the new parking structure to the Cooksville GO Station rail platform. For your information, this is what is happening in the next few weeks:
- In late October, a mobile crane will arrive to the site that will be used to lift the pedestrian bridge. We will need about 14 tractor trailers to load the mobile crane and assemble it on site. Once assembled, its footprint will be 20 by 20 metres. The mobile crane will be on site for two weeks.
- The new pedestrian bridge lift will occur in early November and will take approximately four hours to complete.
- You will receive further notice when dates are confirmed.
- The bridge will be fully constructed with glass, louvres, roofing and soffits when it is lifted.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
This activity will be scheduled on a weekend for CP Rail safety requirements and to avoid disrupting train schedules. There will be minimal impact for residents and adjacent properties, but notice will be sent in advance. Site access will continue to be restricted to ensure the safety of the public and our workers.
The safety of our neighbours, community and customers comes first. As it gets darker outside with the change of seasons, we want to make sure that people are getting to and from the station safely. Please cross streets at marked crosswalks or intersections and watch for turning vehicles.
Thank you for your patience as we build transit to connect our communities.
