After years of promises, multiple delays and a fair share of mysetery, a Contract is being awarded in the amount of over $40 million to finally build the Goreway Bridge. Delays have driven the costs up by $19 million. The Brampton City staff are the lead on this project.
Goreway over the CN tracks will be closed for 12-15 months for construction, eliminating the need for track rerouting and detour construction which would add $9.5m to the costs and 26 months to the project.
After consulting with many residents of Malton, it was agreed we’ve waited too long for the bridge at a location that sees 15,000 vehicles a day regularly being halted by 50 freight trains per day. The road closure will be a small inconvenience to ensure to finally enjoy the convenience of our overpass.
