Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project

About the Project

The Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project is a provincially-planned light rail system, developed by the cities of Mississauga and Brampton with Metrolinx. The project is funded through a $1.4 billion commitment from the Province of Ontario.

Hurontario LRT project will bring 18 kilometres of fast, reliable, rapid transit to the cities of Mississauga and Brampton along the Hurontario corridor. The LRT line will have 19 stops with connections to the Milton and Lakeshore West GO Transit lines, MiWay, Brampton Züm, and the Mississauga Transitway along Highway 403. The Hurontario LRT will move tens of thousands of people a day, helping Mississauga tackle gridlock and congestion while forming the north-south spine of the regionally-connected transit network.

The City of Mississauga Hurontario LRT Project Office is working closely with Metrolinx, the provincial government agency responsible for leading the Hurontario LRT.

Moving forward with this project represents a major step towards transformational transit improvements in Mississauga and Brampton—part of Metrolinx’s long-term vision for an integrated, sustainable transit network connecting the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

Preparatory construction along the entire Hurontario LRT corridor has been ongoing and will continue until major construction begins in late 2019.

Hurontario LRT forms a critical link for businesses and residents along the Hurontario corridor. In the next two decades, about a quarter of the City┐s employment and residents will be along this corridor.

A construction schedule, including completion date, will be provided by the successful team upon financial close in the summer of 2019.

Property Acquisition and Expropriation In Progress:

Metrolinx has initiated the property acquisition process to buy land needed to build the Hurontario LRT. The majority of property pieces required for the Hurontario LRT consist of slivers of a land along the Hurontario corridor. Metrolinx, with the assistance of the City of Mississauga and City of Brampton LRT property teams, is reaching out to the affected property owners with a view of achieving amicable agreements. Metrolinx is committed to ensuring that property owners understand the process and their rights.

The project team has also begun the expropriation process with statutory notices being sent out to the affected properties. Negotiations with the affected owners will continue in parallel during this process in efforts to reach negotiated settlements.

The Expropriations Act, R.S.O. 1990, c E 26 is legislation which allows an authority to obtain possession of land in absence of an agreement with property owners however provides a mechanism for owners to be fairly compensated and allows for negotiations between the owner and Metrolinx to continue during the process.
