  • Implementation of a pedestrian underpass to restore east/west connection at Paton Road;
  • Erection of retaining walls forming the approaches of the grade separation structure, topped with noise barrier walls and superimposed cladding to minimize impacts on the community;
  • Construction of a rail guideway offset within the corridor during construction to accommodate a temporary diversion track and a temporary rail diamond;
  • Modification of an existing at-grade road crossing at Wallace Avenue to become a road under rail grade separation;
  • Public realm enhancements, including artwork on the structure cladding and new pedestrian and cyclist routes; and
  • Provisions for future electrification implemented within upgraded rail infrastructure to accommodate future electrified GO train service.
