The City of Mississauga and the City of Brampton are holding open houses on April 25 and 26, to provide updates on the Hurontario-Main LRT project.
In 2011, the outcome of the cities’ Master Plan concluded that Light Rail Transit (LRT) is the preferred form of transit along the Hurontario-Main corridor, supporting the vision for a vibrant corridor from the Lakeshore in Port Credit to downtown Brampton. An LRT system, providing key transportation connections to the cities, both north/south and with the GO Transit system, has been identified as a catalyst for sustainable, well-managed growth.

The Hurontario-Main LRT Project is now in the Preliminary Design and Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) Phase. This includes further design and technical studies, followed by stakeholder and public consultations as the design proceeds.
To launch this phase of the project, two drop-in style open houses have been scheduled:
|Mississauga||Wednesday, April 25, 2012||3 – 8 p.m.||
Mississauga Civic Centre
The Great Hall
300 City Centre Drive
April 26, 2012
|3 – 8 p.m.||
Brampton City Hall
2 Wellington Street West
Both Open Houses will feature updates on the project, as well as information about LRT and its benefits. Project team members will be on hand to answer questions.
