Westney Road Access During GO Station Improvements

In the coming months, residents will see some construction activity at the Ajax GO Station that will affect access to Westney Road. To expand the existing limited parking, GO is building a parking structure and improving station access. Before the work can begin on the parking structure, GO will add an access road with a pedestrian walkway connecting the south lot and overflow parking to O'Brien Court. For additional info regarding GO improvements click here.
