ACTION ALERT – Write Metrolinx NOW to support Mimico GO Station

In early 2016, we were told improvements to Mimico GO station would begin in 2016, however in an Aug 2016 Metrolinx update, we learned that detailed design & construction is scheduled for 2018 to early 2021.This is a full two years later than we were told 6 months ago, and completion is four years later.

Mimico Station accessibility has been an ongoing issue for many years and delaying the improvements is not an option. See link to draft letter.
