[Metrolinx](http://www.metrolinx.com/) continues a project to enhance communication and safety features and create more connections at **Malton GO Station**, as part of the **GO Expansion Program**.
Starting Thursday, **January 7**, [GO Transit](http://www.gotransit.com/) is temporarily changing how you access the station during the next phase of construction. Contractors are continuing to install utilities underground for the new electrical building at the station.
To board GO, [Brampton Transit](http://www.brampton.ca/en/residents/transit/Pages/home.aspx) or [MiWay](https://www.mississauga.ca/miway-transit/) buses, **use the temporary bus platform**, just west of the passenger pick-up and drop-off area (or "Kiss and Ride") near the accessible parking spaces.
**The east tunnel is closed**. Use the west tunnel to get to and from the train platform.
GO is closing about 90 parking spaces, including three accessible spaces. GO says, "There will still be plenty of parking available for you at the station."
The transit agency continues to close part of the Kiss and Ride. Directional signs inform you where to enter and exit the Kiss & Ride. Part of the pedestrian path from the bus loop to the station building remains closed. To get to the station building, use the pedestrian path from the parking lot and the Kiss and Ride.
This phase of construction at Malton GO Station continues "for two months" meaning as late as **until March 6**.

Since Monday, **November 30**, GO has closed 38 parking spaces in the lot west of the station building.
It's also closing part of the passenger drop-off and pick-up area (the "Kiss and Ride"). However, most lanes are still available. It's also closed part of the walkway at the west side of the station building, beside the Kiss and Ride. You can access the station building from the walkway at the east side of the station beside the bus loop.
GO is temporarily closing these facilities so that contractors can install utilities in the area and create a new laneway to access the station.
GO is closing the parking spaces, part of the Kiss and Ride and the walkway "until spring 2021", meaning as late as **until June 30**, 2021.
Since Monday, **October 26**, GO has **closed 25 parking spaces** in the lot **west of the station building** as part of the same project.
The work zone blocks the parking spaces until "the end of the year", meaning as late as **until December 31**.
Metrolinx is preparing the station for GO Expansion by:
+ adding tactile yellow safety tiles at the edge of the train platforms to remind you how far back to stand;
+ installing new digital signs on the train platforms;
+ widening the island platform to allow trains to stop on the north side; and
+ changing the accessible platform to function on both sides.
Metrolinx continues upgrading the station "until spring 2022" or **until June 30**, 2022.
Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service [along the Kitchener line](http://www.metrolinx.com/en/greaterregion/projects/kitchener-go-expansion.aspx), as part of their [GO Expansion Program](http://www.metrolinx.com/en/greaterregion/projects/go-expansion.aspx) (formerly "[regional express rail](/archives/weblog/2014/04/17-ontario_go.shtml)").
