GO train commuters in Mississauga are getting about 100 parking spaces reopened to them at a busy station in the city’s south end.

The parking spaces at the Port Credit GO station had been closed since July 2022 for construction related to the Hazel McCallion Line, the 18-kilometre light-rail transit route that’ll run from south Mississauga to Brampton via Hurontario Street when it opens in late 2024 or early next year.

Officials with Metrolinx, the provincial agency in charge of the massive LRT project, said this week that “approximately 100 more parking spaces” at Port Credit GO are now available once again.

Project leaders added the spaces, which are located near the creek and train tracks, were reopened after the snow cleared to allow for line painting.

Meanwhile, daily work continues all along the Hazel McCallion Line, including just steps away from Port Credit GO. Motorists and area residents along Hurontario Street, from Park Street north to the QEW, will face delays and other minor disruptions throughout 2024.

When completed, the $4.6-billion Hazel McCallion Line will whisk riders from Port Credit GO in south Mississauga all the way north into Brampton via Hurontario Street, with 19 stops along the way.

Metrolinx is currently studying the feasibility of extending the line by three kilometres into downtown Brampton and reintroducing the “downtown loop” to the City Centre area of Mississauga. The latter component would add several stops to the route.

The agency is expected to report back to the provincial government in the coming days with a plan to make those additions happen.
