More about the parking lot closure at Oshawa GO

Thanks to Bicky for this information.

Thornton Road Feeder Watermain, from Wentworth Street to Champlain Avenue, in the City of Oshawa
Construction of a large diameter feeder watermain for the Zone 1 watermain on Thornton Rd., from Wentworth St. north to the CPR and from north of the CPR to Champlain Ave. The installation will be completed by both open-cut and tunnel operations. The tunneled section crosses Hwy. 401, from the northwest corner of Thornton Rd. and Champlain Ave. to the southwest corner of Thornton Rd. and Bloor St. The open-cut sections will be through the east side of the GO Transit parking to the north side of the CPR, across Thornton Rd., just south of Bloor St. and from the south side of the CPR to Wentworth St. Some work will be completed at night and on weekends to minimize inconvenience to the public, although traffic restrictions will remain in-place for the duration of the Project, for protection of both the public and workers. The Project is expected to be completed in its entirety by August 31, 2015.

Guess your blog lit a fire under someone's butt CJ because I got this just now in my email. lol @ "revision" YOU HAD ONE JOB:

"Revision: Oshawa GO Passengers: Starting Monday, February 2, the Region of Durham will be installing a water main under the parking lot at your station. As a result, the north-east corner of the parking lot, along with two lanes of the Kiss & Ride and the adjoining sidewalk will be closed for about 2 months. Until then, you may consider parking at either the Whitby or Ajax GO Stations."
