Response from Metrolinx Re: Mimico GO Station Improvement delays

We were told improvements to Mimico GO station would resume in 2016, however in an Aug 2016 Metrolinx update, we learned that detailed design & construction is scheduled for 2018 to early 2021. This is a full two years later and completion is four years later than previously communicated.
