The Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project will bring 18 kilometres of fast, reliable, rapid transit to the cities of Mississauga and Brampton along the Hurontario corridor. New, modern light rail vehicles will travel in a dedicated right-of-way and serve 19 stops with connections to GO Transit’s Milton and Lakeshore West rail lines, Mississauga MiWay, Brampton Züm, and the Mississauga Transitway BRT. Funded through a $1.4 billion commitment from the Province of Ontario, the Hurontario LRT is a signature project of the Moving Ontario Forward plan.

Early works on the Hurontario LRT project continue, with utility relocations including new watermains, as well as road widening and bus platform relocations—all tasks to prepare for rail and station construction. Plus, excavation for the push box at Port Credit is underway. In addition, the operations, maintenance and storage facility under construction is making progress; and prep work for the installation of track is underway beside the facility.
