Metrolinx Maintenance - GO Barrie Line

Metrolinx will be conducting track maintenance work overnight on the Barrie GO line in your community for the next few days. This work is scheduled for October 1 – 18, from 11 p.m. to 9 a.m. 

What work is scheduled for completion? 

Work will take place on the tracks within in the Barrie Corridor. Crews will be using a track tamping machine called DYNA-CAT to conduct this operation. The DynaCAT is a machine that corrects track deviations caused by trains overtime, which if left uncorrected, can reduce the speed at which trains can safely travel on the track. Through a process called “surfacing”, the DYNA-CAT adjusts the alignment and elevation of the track to their proper values. Please note this work is dependent on weather conditions.
