Metrolinx just released images of the first stop to be completed on Mississauga’s LRT line.

The $1.4-billion, 18-kilometre Hazel McCallion light rail transit (LRT) line will include 19 stops from the Port Credit GO Station in the south to Brampton Gateway Terminal in the north.

Construction is well underway on the line along Hurontario Street. If all goes to plan, the project could be complete in the fall of 2024.

And Metrolinx, the provincial agency overseeing the massive transit project, released renderings of the design concept for the Matheson stop.

The platform at the Matheson stop is currently under construction with installation of the canopy, expected be finished early this year, Metrolinx said in a blog post.

The canopy will protect commuters from the elements and provide nighttime lighting to increase safety and visibility. Other elements of the stop include ticketing machines and area route maps.
