Yep. It's been in the works for a while. The current Hamilton GO Centre can only host limited service due to the 117-year-old 1-track tunnel under Hunter Street and the corresponding freight movement that runs through it (CP owns the tracks, their trains get priority). The cost to expanding or rebuilding it is prohibitive, so GO has turned their attention to the CN line further south.

The new station, as article mentions, will host hourly service while the GO Centre will continue to serve rush hour trains (as an aside, its unfortunate they didn't purchase the 1923 CNR station across the site, which is currently being used as a banquet hall). All in all, a big positive for Hamilton though still a long way to go until Copps is made a transit-friendly destination.
