Centennial Parkway | Confederation Station | ? | Approved

As explained in the "GO/Via" thread, I'd be creating a new thread in the suburbs section dedicated to the approved Confederation Station for GO Transit as proposed and approved by the Liberals for the promised all day train service to Toronto.

If you have not viewed the image of the station, here it is: http://gotransitnlb.gotransit.com/pu...Station%20.pdf

The construction just as the new James Street North station is suppose to be completed before the 2015 Pan Am Games, sometime in 2014, and according to local rumours was slated to begin this March, but nothing has been started and no postings around the area have been put up. The bridge over Centennial Parkway was in dire need of repair and a public information session outlining the work required was posted in the newspaper during the months of November and December. But other then that, with the opening of the new Wal-Mart Power Centre nothing has been stated about the station since.

If anyone has anymore information, including rumours, images, files, and articles pertaining to the construction of this station it would be greatly appreciated if you could post it to keep this thread alive. Thank you.

Why would this be in the suburbs section? It's well within the old city of Hamilton boundaries.

Youre right, but I could forgive a guy for thinking Stoney Creek starts at centennial parkway.

I think Stoney Creek starts at Centenial Parkway if you're on King St. But if you're on Barton, Stoney Creek starts further east.

The old boundary went North from the escarpment down Centennial to Queenston then East to I think Grays Rd, then North to the lake.

CENTENNIAL PARKWAY GO STATION
Councillor Chad Collins Report (Riverdale Community Edition) - September 2013

The Province of Ontario (through GO Transit/Metrolinx) has completed an environmental assessment process related to a GO regional transit service extension to the Niagara Region. As part of this service extension initiative, GO Transit/Metrolinx is in the site design process for a new GO Station in Hamilton on James Street North, which is targeted for opening in 2015. A second GO Transit station is also planned for Hamilton, in the Centennial Parkway area. The City of Hamilton is aware that GO Transit/Metrolinx has begun the process of purchasing land, including some surplus City land along Kenora Avenue for the purposes of the future Centennial Station. We’ve yet to be informed as to the timing of the service extension. I’ll provide additional details regarding the timing of construction as soon as information is made available.
