There's a notice on A8 of the Mercury today about the Go transit environmental assessment to bring rail to Guelph and beyond. Here's part of what it says:
"THE STUDY: GO Transit, the Province of Ontario's interregional public transit service for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton areas, is undertaking a Preliminary Design Study and Class Environmental Assessment to expand rail services from Georgetown to Kitchener. The Study will review potential sites for the construction of new rail stations and layover facilities, and will also identify potential improvements to the existing rail line between Georgetown and Kitchener.
"THe PROCESS: ... An Environmental Study Report (ESR) documenting the preliminary design work, anticipated environmental effectsf of the project and commitments to mitigation measures will be filed for public and agency review at the completion of hte study...."
