In conclusion this analyses was able to determine a suitability map that illustrated which areas in Clarington are most suitable for the implementation of new GO train station stop that follows the existing Lakeshore East line. However, the final suitability of the study area did not develop as predicted; the basis of this study was that the construction of the 407 east extension would create a favorable set of parameters for additional development of a GO station and rail extension in the same plot of land as the highway. Through multi-criteria evaluation the study assessed the cost impact of several economic and environmental factors including the slope and distance from the 407 extension; the closer to the 407 the lower the predicted cost of developing new rail, distance to waterbodies, existing rail and track, greenbelt, conservation areas and infrastructure. Although distance from the 407 was an extremely important criterion based on its use as a proxy for multiple factors, slope was weighted slightly higher because of the slope limitation of LRT railways; the slope must be 4% or lower or cost to build increases significantly. The locations with the highest suitability were found to be in the south eastern corner of the study area; this section has the lowest slope and is very close to existing rail line. The condensed area of optimal suitability indicates that the slope of the area surrounding the 407 extension is too steep to be suitable for rail transportation. The divergence between suitability for road development and suitability for rail development stems from the laws concerning slope requirements; roads require a slope <6% while rail requires a slope <4%.The proposal for the study mentioned that an LCP was to be conducted to connect the new station to the existing station under the assumption that the new station would not fall along any existing rail lines. However, the new station stop was found to run along an existing rail line eliminating the need to run an LCP analysis.
