Project Highlights

Located at 214 Main Street North in Markham, Ontario, the Markham Go Station is a Registered Railway Heritage Building. Notwithstanding recent parking lot upgrades and a platform extension in 1992, the station was last restored in 2002. Some of the issues the station faced included congestion on the existing platform and road blockage on Snider Drive, which is south of the station. Cole Engineering was retained by Metrolinx in order to provide engineering services including preliminary design, detailed design, preparation of tender documents and contract administration. The project team successfully provided the construction of a new west platform, expansion of the existing platform with access improvements, as well as a feasibility study for the road realignment of Snider Drive. All platform shelters were replaced with new heated shelters, and the construction of an electrical bunker building now incorporates the Station’s heritage features.
