On June 20, 2016 the Ontario Government and Metrolinx announced the extension of the GO Transit Lakeshore East Corridor by 20 kilometres, with two new stations each in Oshawa and Clarington. The new GO rail service is expected to begin between 2023 to 2024. The extension will provide our community with more transit options and also serve as a catalyst for economic investment and as a result a growing workforce.

Through Metrolinx, Ontario's regional transportation authority for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, the Province is working with CP rail on infrastructure and service planning for the extension. A portion of the proposed extension in Clarington will use CP Rail's existing corridor north of Highway 401 and will involve building an overpass over the highway.

The Municipality of Clarington has long advocated for the GO Train extension. Clarington Council has taken some key steps to making a sound economic case for this crucial infrastructure investment. An independent economic impact study was released in April 2016. It showed the potential for $1.1 billion in investment that would be generated by the GO Lakeshore East extension. The study was financed by Durham Learning and Business District (dLAB), a partnership between Durham College, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, Trent University Durham, River Oaks Group and Halloway Developments Ltd.; the Municipality of Clarington; the City of Oshawa; the Municipality of Port Hope; the Town of Cobourg; Northumberland County; and Halminen Homes.

Transportation Hubs

In anticipation of the GO extension, Clarington has been working with a consultant to develop a high-level vision for the two transportation hubs around the future Courtice and Bowmanville GO Stations. The Municipality wants to ensure that development around the proposed GO stations is adequately planned, so these stations are more than just train stations, they also become destinations.
