VIDEO: See what’s happening on the huge Hurontario light rail transit project in Mississauga and Brampton

There’s a lot of work going on along Mississauga’s longest, and busiest, road as crews make progress on the massive Hurontario light rail transit (LRT) system.
Curb replacement, utility relocations and lane widening are all happening along the 18-kilometre LRT route, which when completed in fall 2024 will move passengers from Port Credit GO station in the south to Brampton, with 19 stops along the way.
Officials with Metrolinx, the agency responsible for public transit projects across the Golden Horseshoe, recently held a virtual open house for people and businesses along the route.
They’ve also created a three-minute video to tell people about the project, update them on what’s happening now and let them know what’s to come in 2022.
When completed, the Hurontario LRT will offer a dedicated right-of-way running from south Mississauga to Brampton Gateway Terminal. It will link to GO stations at Port Credit and Cooksville, the Mississauga Transitway, Square One GO Bus Terminal, Brampton Gateway Terminal, and key MiWay and Brampton Transit routes.
Officials say the LRT will be a critical link for residents and businesses in the area as one-quarter of Mississauga’s employment and residents is expected to be along the Hurontario corridor in the next two decades.
The initiative is part of Metrolinx’s long-term vision for an integrated, sustainable transit network connecting the Greater Toronto and Hamilton areas.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
