Premier Ford Announces New GO station in Hamilton

The new station will help reduce gridlock and connect more people to jobs, housing and transit in one of the fastest growing regions in the province.

HAMILTON - A new GO station named Confederation is coming to Hamilton.

The new station will help reduce gridlock and connect more people to jobs, housing and transit in one of the fastest growing regions in the province.

Premier Doug Ford says the government is delivering the convenient transit options that people deserve.

“Families, commuters and businesses throughout Hamilton and across the Greater Golden Horseshoe rely on the Lakeshore West line every day. Building the new Confederation GO station will make it easier for Hamilton commuters to access transit and boost economic growth.”

Confederation GO station will offer several key amenities, including an accessible island platform with canopies, pedestrian tunnel, 15-vehicle passenger pick-up and drop-off area and direct stair access from Centennial Parkway. Commuters will also have access to approximately 150 additional parking spaces.

Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation says improving the connection of regions throughout the province has been a priority.

“Building Ontario through critical transit infrastructure projects, like Confederation GO station, is part of our plan to fight gridlock and reduce emissions, while connecting more people to jobs and housing.”

The new station will support a more integrated transit network for Hamilton, providing better connections to existing local transit and GO bus services, while facilitating future increased GO rail service opportunities to Toronto and Niagara Falls.

The province is investing around $50M into this project, and is hoping to complete it by 2025.
