VIA Rail launches renovations to Brockville Station

VIA Rail Canada launched an extensive renovation project July 29, which will transform its station in Brockville, Ontario.


Renovations to the station, originally built in 1872, include a new roof, a new building envelope and new lighting and finishes, door and window replacement, the installation of an automatic door and other accessibility improvements for people with disabilities.

A building adjacent to the station will be demolished and a passenger shelter will be built in its place. The work is expected to be completed by November 2014 and will create 12 full-time and part-time jobs.
